Hi! Come in, lets talk and have some champagne!
It's my first blog post, 5 years in the making, I believe in perfect timing though! I admit I let fear and inexperience with writing get the best of me. Im an amazing doula, and on a good day Im a great mom and wife, but writer I am not, until I decided I was!
Get in here, make yourself at home.
Just a little intro about me and my purpose here.
I am a Michigan girl living her dream life in Los Angeles, CA.
And, no my dream is not to be an actor, although I have been on a reality show (more about that later) AND sometimes I moonlight as a props/set decorator (same, later!)
I AM A DOULA.
I am a birth and postpartum doula, and a newborn care specialist. I also do placenta encapsulation, Reiki, healing spiritual and energy, belly binding, and nursery design. Im in the kitchen preparing everything from food to herbal blends. I do store runs and run herbal baths in candle lit bathrooms. All of this for new moms needing a moment to slow down and one less thing on their 'to do' list.
I'm here to tell you that being a doula, this is the real dream.
My husband, my 2 children and I, along with our small zoo have lived in the Midwest, in the suburbs of Atlanta and now the west coast. We have definitely found where we want to spend the next season of our life, this is our place.
We have a !4 year old son and our daughter is 12. I have to remind myself daily to stay in the moment with them, I find myself longing for the days when they were babies, wanting to keep them close and protected.
We are all artists in this family. My husband and son are writers, music producers and performers and my daughter, is a crafter at heart and a baker. You will hear about them here and there, because this mom has some stories to tell, believe me you will never feel alone here.
Help me create a familiar space to share our truths our triumphs and troubles.
My goal is to build a community for us to run too for resources and recipes. A place to sidle up too for support and of course a little sarcasm, a place to drop all the knowledge, tips and tricks so everyone can be in the know and have options to find what works best for them. Thats how we spread love and take care of one another.
WE BELONG TO EACHOTHER

Im going to be on Sobre Mesa's (around the table) podcast coming up this month. We are talking mothers day, motherhood and mother shaming. You don't want to miss it.
For funsies lets challenge ourselves to keep our hearts and minds feeling gratitude as much as possible for the next 7 days. Thursday to Thursday. When you catch yourself, take a minute to feel true gratitude and set some intention, manifest your life!
Is that possible? We can totally do this.
YOU ARE LOVE(D)
