Babymoon :: Wrap-Up + Gratitude

by flowers on August 10, 2010 · 8 comments

Tonight our very last meal is being delivered to our doorstep and this past Monday I posted my very last guest post as part of my babymoon guest post series. Although it’s hard for me to believe sweet Ninu is indeed six weeks old and nearly all grown up. I plan on soaking up every [...]


41 Week Check-In

by flowers on June 24, 2010 · 5 comments

I just wanted to check-in with everyone. I noticed I haven’t been posting regularly the last few weeks and that feels okay as I’ve slowed down. The birth activism I’ve been working on since last November is at its final push. We believe there will be a full floor vote on Monday before the legislative [...]


Friday’s Flowers :: Good Friends

by flowers on June 18, 2010 · 19 comments

(My Friday’s Flowers which were gifted to me at my Mother’s Blessingway.) Life can be a roller coaster sometimes: thrilling, but filled with heart-stopping drops, surprising twists and a seemingly endless ride. I certainly know this right now. Whether it’s welcoming our third child any moment into our tiny 750 sq/ft home, relying solely on [...]


Guest posting is a great way to build community, introduce yourself to new readers and write for a different venue. I’ve decided to accept and publish a few guest posts so I can keep things alive and flowing here as I take time to have the baby and enjoy my babymoon! I’d love it if [...]


Parade + Birth Advocacy

by flowers on June 7, 2010 · 3 comments

This past weekend was the Ithaca Festival which happens every year the weekend after the college students go home. It’s a way for locals to celebrate the arrival of summer and there is a heavy focus on local music and art. Everything is kicked off on Thursday night at the big parade. We actually live [...]


We had our home visit tonight. It was very different from our first two–much less formal and not so urgent feeling. The midwife asked what our vision was and I pretty much said, “Well, and then I’ll just have the baby.” We all laughed because isn’t that the truth of it all. You can plan [...]


Holiday Cheer & a Give-Away

by flowers on December 14, 2009 · 8 comments

Being Monday, I promised you all the final installment of the holiday give-away. There will be a give-away at the end of the post, but my planned holiday treat will be postponed a day or two while I wait for the beautiful, squishy package to come in the mail. In the meantime I’ll catch you [...]

I’ve wanted to share pictures I took a few weeks back. We were out visiting our friends’ new home and land and celebrating this new beginning with them. We were lucky enough to be there when they announced they are expecting their first child and now it warms my heart to know my little one [...]


Old Friends, New Times

by flowers on May 28, 2009 · 3 comments

I have a big weekend ahead of me and it starts tomorrow. Ithaca’s annual hometown festival kicks off with a parade right down our street. Last year we saw unicyclists, earthen buildings on wheels, giant breastfeeding puppets, old Volvos in tutus and a man wearing thousands of old plastic shopping bags as a eco-political fashion [...]


Everybody Wins :: Multi-Age Play

by flowers on May 26, 2009 · 11 comments

I have been blissfully immersed in a new group of friends. I am so happy about this because as Solshine grows, more and more of his friends disappear into the world of school, and of course, I want community for him (and for us) that mirrors our normal way of living. We are about five [...]
