Do you live near your family?

My husband and I moved 6 hours from our family when we first got married before we had a baby. Now we have a daughter (5 months) and it has made me so homesick! I have no friends here and am a stay at home mom so the only adult interaction is with my husband. Don't get me wrong I love him dearly and he is my bff! However I would love to have just one friend down here until we can get back home. I just haven't met anyone that I like!

  • We ended up living near family since I met my husband at work and he works near them. It is great to have family nearby. When I was a SAHM I took the children for walks around the neighborhood and met the neighbors and invited them over for coffee and playdates. I also belonged to church and Sunday School and took the children to the playground and library and to classes at the Y and at the college.
