Retreat!!!!  Oh what a luxurious location and splendid time.

Retreat!!!! Oh what a luxurious location and splendid time.

We were nestled in the heart of the Wine Country for our week long retreat.  With beautiful views and a relaxed environment, it was ripe for learning, idea exchange, camaraderie, and best of all great food and conversation...oh yes and the massages!  From the depths of our souls, we thank the lovely ladies at PAXbaby for all of the hard work and energy to get this retreat going!  Wish you had been with us?  Join us next year!

Winter Blizzard GROWS in Northampton!

I took the chance to risk the ravages of winter and drove to Northampton to train the lovely group that Grow hosted.  I am very glad I did.  What a great group and town!  Northampton is a college town and the NY'er in me was unwilling to believe that cars really stopped for pedestrians to cross the street... but they do in Northampton, MA!  Simply amazing to me, that's a true first.  This town has a lot of great personality including great food and even better coffee (you know that is very important to me)!

We had a wonderful time together and were lucky to have group with such diverse backgrounds.  We had a weaver from Vermont, several nurses, a placenta encapsulator,  volunteers, and a few retailers.  Many great women with so much to share, well a few kids who stole the limelight and warmed our hearts too. 

The classroom space at Grow is so beautiful, I encourage you to visit if you are near.  So much natural light, plenty of space, and great teachers plus it's in a really neat building.  They have a very nice retail store that you are welcome to peruse too.  I am sure you could find something to tempt you.  You can pretty much do all your shopping and eating in the building and walk to the covered parking and never trek in the snow.  I call that brilliant really.  I ended up staying one night longer than planned since old man blizzard blew into town.  I can't complain, the town is charming.  I look forward to seeing it again when there is green everywhere instead of white.

For the LOVE of a Rebozo with Gena Kirby

I spent a quiet winter day with a good friend and attending Gena Kirby's rebozo workshop for tips on using the rebozo during labor.  Of course I am interested in the use of a long piece of fabric that can be used as a shawl, a birthing tool, or traditionally as a baby carrier, right?! :-)

It's the Love Shack, Baby!

We are super excited to be going to Atlanta, Georgia!

Chicago Bound!

After many up and down's we have a great location for our Chicago area training. 

Giving a very special shout-out to Beth of CatBird Baby for her good ole-fashion sleuthing! 

Bayridge was so much fun!

In all my years in NYC it is hard to believe I have never visited Bayridge.  It is a fantastic neighborhood, so many great shops and eateries. 

Brooklyn's newest baby store!

There will be a new baby soon in Brooklyn...a retail store I mean. Baby/Mama will be in Bayridge and will cater to the needs of expecting and new parents.

German Tragetage July 2011

I had such a fantastic time here in Dresden at the conference. There were several really great lectures. If you take a close look at the first picture you will see my beautiful translator! I would have been lost with out her, Kathrin Muysers.
