« And Back Again! | Main | Update April 2011 »


Hi everyone. Again, I have dragged my feet about posting on my blog. I am still adjusting to life in Austin. It is summer now so it is hot hot hot! But I am actually getting used to it--plus our a/c is wonderful. I have spent the last 3 months connecting with the doula community, scheduling doula 'play dates' and going to meetings. I still have so much to do and so many people to meet, but I have already met a bunch of really awesome women. I have also met a lot of moms outside of the birth world and have been building friendships. Butterfly Elements is a work in progress and we are focusing now on getting the word out and ramping up marketing. I started offering placenta encapsulation services--this should be interesting and fun! Postpartum work is slow but I'm not giving up. I added a focus on healthy nutrition with my services and will follow the philosophy of Weston A. Price. So I will hopefully be cooking a lot more and sharing new recipes.

Diego and I started looking for a house. This has been an incredibly....challenging experience! Wow, I had no idea, I honestly thought it would be fun! But no, it was been hard and I can't wait for it to be over. Luckily I like our apartment and it's location so patience is not a problem.

Wyatt is still the apple of my eye, I love watching him learn and grow. He says new words all the time. Yesterday he pointed at the ground and said "bug." There are bugs everywhere in Texas and it's especially worse this time of year. He was pointing at a dead June bug. He is still a very happy-go-lucky kind of kid and I love him so much!

I will be back in town on July 11th for 5 days, so if anyone wants a visit from me--let me know!
