One Year Ago


One year ago I wrote this post. It was the beginning of this space, my space. A space to share with you this amazing journey I am on as a mom. It is a space I love coming to each and every day, giving you a peek into my days and my thoughts.

This space was a long time coming, something I had thought about for quite some time before writing that first post. I had been blogging for quite some time at Your Green Baby, my nutrition consulting site, and had slowly started including a little bit more about our life on our little homestead. It felt good sharing little bits and pieces and so the spark for Mothering with Mindfulness was lite.  It took a little prodding from a friend, a little more thought and then finally I did it, I wrote that first post.

While I come to this space to share with you, I had no idea when I began this journey how much you would give me. In this space I have found like minded families, I have found mamas learning, growing and changing on their own journeys, I have found inspiration, I have found friends and I have found community. For all of that I am truly grateful. I am grateful for those of you who stop in every day to check in on us, those of you who leave a comment and those of you who just read, you all make this space a wonderful place for me to come to.

So today to celebrate the one year anniversary of my space, and to show my appreciation and gratitude to all of you who are traveling this journey with me I am hosting a giveaway!!!
