Hello Jess,

Welcome to the Sand Box. 

It may not seem really easy right now for you, but breaking out on your own is a really exciting time.  It takes time to meet friends so be patient.    How old is your child and what are your hobbies, where do you live, etc?

I'm Suzan, the cl of the board, and others will be around soon to say Hi ....   again , welcome ;O)

Welcome Jess!! I wish you the best as you venture out on your own. It takes time to develop friendships beyond light acquaintances. Friends can be found at work, church, playgroups for kids, volunteering, clubs and organizations.

Hi Jess. Venturing out on your own is a very scary time, but it can be exciting and liberating as well.  Come on in here anytime to chat. The gals are friendly and, as Deb said, Suzan is a wonderful leader!
