Keep Austin Crunchy {Local Mom Leader Amber}

On our most recent trip to Austin, the hubby and I were discussing what makes Austin such an appealing vacation destination for us.  He noted how ironic it was that Austin, the capital of one of the most conservative, “red” states, could be so…well, hippie.  I’d never really thought of it that way, but I […]

Review: Happy Family Food Bundle

VBAC Success! Jen’s Story.

  Archer. My happy, bright, joy of a baby boy. Born after a whirlwind of a labor. My second son, but the first to be placed on my newly-soft belly, looking up at me with blinking, “What the heck just happened??” eyes. I’ll tell you what the heck just happened, Kid… At 41 weeks even, […]

Now that I am close to giving birth to our second child, I find myself reflecting on my first birth. While not everything went the way I imagined it would, my experience was peaceful, empowering, and positive. On June 9th, 2011 at 1:16 am I pulled my little girl out of the water and onto […]
