Mothering with Mindfulness Sponsor - So Fawned

Today I would like to introduce you to one of my March sponsors Desiree Fawn of So Fawned.

Tell us a little about yourself.
Hello! My name is Desiree and I live in Ontario with my 3-year-old daughter, Gretchen. I work as a doula, childbirth educator and blogger, I'm addicted to tea and I adore life in my hometown.

When did you start blogging and why?

I first started my blog in August 2008, while pregnant with my daughter. I wanted a way to document life and keep track of things. I just enjoy sharing bits of myself.

Your work as a doula must be very rewarding and full of joy, how did you become interested in helping women in this capacity?

One of my dearest friends was present at the home birth of my daughter, and she stayed by my side, kept me breathing, and made the entire experience beautiful. I knew I wanted to assist women in a similar way.

What dream for the future is floating around in your head right now?

I'm currently working on a bit of a secret project which I can't quite spill the details of, but I can say it's VERY exciting and will mean a big change in my life! Stay tuned!

What is your favourite way to relax and take care of yourself?

To relax, I like to make myself a pot of tea, curl up under the blankets and read a book or watch a favourite movie. Afternoon naps with my daughter are also quite lovely!

You have a free day, no plans, what do you do with it?

I would read! And write! And drink lots of coffee! I would be sure to see my friends. I'd also be planning and making decisions in my head... I'm constantly figuring things out and trying to see what the next hour, day, week, month will hold. I'm just a busy bee!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share a little bit about yourself with us. It was wonderful getting to know you a little better Desiree.
