30 for 30 :: Birthday Blessings

by flowers on June 8, 2010 · 12 comments

I had meant to have time to write this earlier or even last night, but we at Free Our Midwives were swept into a last minute, 24 hour, do or die grassroots movement. In the last moments we learned that our midwifery bill was *not* expected to pass and if we had any hope of [...]


Photo Friday :: All the Days of Your Life

by flowers on October 16, 2009 · 7 comments

If you haven’t caught on yet, I’m hopelessly nostalgic.

I looked through many, many birthday quotes for this picture. My life is so [...]


Two Years Ago Right Now

I was lying in our family bed in this very house with a four hour old Koala. I was beyond blissed out and euphoric in love. Solshine was sleeping beside us and my brother and Stone were sitting on our couch enjoying the moment and celebrating the expansion of our family and our love. It [...]

Yesterday was a day of shifting. After a morning of sniffly grumps we shifted our mood with some fresh air and quiet sensory play with beans and grains from the pantry. It led us right into the afternoon, but when Stone came home we were hot, stuffy and the house was a mess. Stick around [...]

Gretel and her family celebrated their sweet boy’s first birthday and we were lucky enough to be invited to share in the fun. The weather was warm and it was a relief for everyone to finally be outside playing! I never heard a peep from Solshine or Koala once we went inside. They are always [...]
