You bet you can! Some of you guys might know that I took on a new educational adventure this year. I decided toward the end of last year that I wanted to expand my horizon and study to become a doula. Simply put a doula is a birth supporter - in whatever way you need them to support you and your partner. I realized that I have always been passionate about working with my pregnant clients during their pregnancy and in their postpartum time and so I found an organization that lets you study on your own pace. I finished the "studying" part of the training process about two weeks ago and am now reading about a dozen more books on various topics related to childbirth and breastfeeding. I am ready to come support though. So ready! Check out my website for more info at www.babybundle.net
It has been almost a year since I last blogged already and I did not even realize it..... Oops. The husband and I went to a Coldplay concert last year which was amazing and also took a trip to SanFran where one of my dear friends got married. It was a blast! I guess it is always great when a bunch of your friends show up to an out-of-town-wedding and you can just enjoy the night till the cows come home. The girls and I made pumpkins this past Halloween and I did not even lose a finger. This was a first time for me and of course I went for a very hard unicorn stencil. I had to!
My parents AND my sister were here in January and naturally stayed for my birthday. We made a cake together this year and my parents tried an all vegan restaurant with us for breakfast. It was a great day over all. We took some bike rides in beautiful Southern California and my sister and I got to go to the Ellen Show after one of my best friends flew(!) us to Burbank.
Then the man and I took a surprise weekend trip to San Diego and that was like a mini-vacation. We rented a nice car and stayed downtown (I think) and just explored the city and enjoyed each other's company! My annual trip to Germany is coming up in August. I haven't been during the summer for a while so I am hoping for a rain-free trip!
Here are some photos from the last ten-ish months.
