I haven't been around here much lately, but with good reason.All of my efforts are starting to come together and make sense. If you'll remember my post about becoming a doula, you might guess why. Training has been going well. Business planning has been eye opening. Networking has been soul... Continue reading

I've been thinking a lot about where we're going. How we're getting there. It seems we all want to ride in the Lamborghini of life when in reality, we need to take the bus. Success is hard work. It's sweat, tears and telemarketing. It's ramen and beanie weenie. It's hand... Continue reading

Inhale the nectar that fills his aura. Lying next to you, nuzzled into your warm breasts, He smells like toasted cheese sandwiches and s'mores. You can almost feel the vitality of his being enter into your bloodstream like the oxygen in the air. It hurts to breathe that deep. It... Continue reading

Listen. Return to the earth and listen. Bring your soul to the mat and spill it out all over the red plastic. Hear the howl of the full moon and let the dew of the night fall on your shoulders. You want to take a stand. To make a change.... Continue reading

sacred. such a powerful word. I've had so much energy in my heart for this word. What is sacred? "everything" she whispers. when I started my sacred soul journey a few years ago, I had no idea where it would lead me. I tried to control the path, cause that's... Continue reading

I've been a little busy since my last post. Mourning the loss of my best friends pregnancy. Discovering that my guess date for baby's arrival was off by roughly 4 weeks. Delivering baby exactly 4 weeks from my first guess date and lately, baby mooning. Add to that trying to... Continue reading

Yesterday, I was surrounded by a tribe of women. Beautiful, gentle souls. They had all gathered to honor my entry into motherhood with my husband and son and to give me their love and support. Something I so desperately need and thrive on right now in the absence of a... Continue reading

for a woman so opinionated, you'd think the answer was simple, or even clear. but it has never been simple. or clear. I want so much but at the same time, find peace in being content with what is. is it selfish to want? I ask myself. or, is wanting... Continue reading

My husband and I have a great relationship. We've evolved from the ripping your clothes off every time you see each other madness to a place where we are both comfortable enough to laugh at ourselves, as well as each other. Don't get me wrong, the passion is still there.... Continue reading

Tomorrow, my child turns eight. As any mother can tell you, learning from your child is one of the most heart wrenching, soul filling experiences you can have as a woman. He came to me, eyes closed, nuzzling into my breast almost before I held him. Over the years, he... Continue reading

After my last post about what I'd like to be when I grow up, I took some initiative and started talking to people. People I love and who love me. People who I trust to support me but also to tell me the truth. I've started on a meandering path... Continue reading

I think more people should blog the real. the nitty gritty. who wants to hear about how fabulous it is to clean a toilet? not me. but to hear someone tell the raw truth, and to be connected on some small level to that person because I've felt that way too? that is good stuff.

Some people know, from a very early age, what they want to do on this earth for the rest of their lives. I, on the other hand, seem to fall in love with a different occupation every year or two. This is not a bad thing. I have learned that... Continue reading

My family and I have spent the past several days together. Unpacking moving boxes, watching movies, eating, laughing, making space in the corners of our home. It has been a great few days. The sort of days that you might take for granted, but shouldn't. We even managed a baby... Continue reading

Everyone is doing it. Choosing a word for the new year, that is. A word to live by, grow by, learn by. A word that might encourage their soul to expand, to embrace, to venture into un-chartered territories. A word that speaks to them. That gives them hope and focus.... Continue reading

After releasing things that no longer served me in my Releasing Ceremony this month, I have felt a little, well, let down. I was expecting to feel this huge release of tension and weight and to feel born again. While I do feel as though I am no longer haunted... Continue reading

I've always loved Christmas. As a child, I so enjoyed getting the things I had asked for so painstakingly over the year. The anticipation ran on for what seemed like months, only to end in a climactic heap of wrapping paper and bows reused from the year before. For me,... Continue reading
