Just finished Molly Wizenberg’s A Homemade Life. Cute stories and delicious sounding recipes I can’t wait to try!

Wow, this new year is off to a ferocious start – what a pace I’m at!!! With the new workout regime kicking my (grateful) arse, a ton of work, and preparing for the next cycle, my brain is fully appreciating this hour of quiet time to write on my blog 🙂

Here are a few things I wanted to share this week:

  • Beautiful: The Seed Saving Farmers Who Pass Down Land to Their Daughters. In our society we live in, as well as in India where this tribe is located, where the majority in power are rich white men, it’s good to see there are exceptions to the norm that has done so much damage to our people and planet.
  • If you’ve never seen it, check out Jimmy Carter’s TEDTalk from 2015, where he explains why he believes “the mistreatment of women is the number one human rights abuse.” I couldn’t agree more. You will never hear a Republican candidate say anything even remotely close to this. Remember that in November.
  • I loved reading about the Vulnerable Children Society, founded by a family who adopted their child from Ethiopia and which works hands-on with Ethiopian partners on the ground to build and manage life-changing programs affecting the country’s most underserved children.
  • The class of 2034 gestates in 2016. Now that’ll make ya feel your years, hahaha…but really, as I read the news of fellow IVF blogger BabyScienceProject‘s pregnancy, I thought this was nice inspiration for those, expecting in the coming year (twins, wowie!).
  • And finally, speaking of age, Why I Love My Age is a massive HELL YEAH! for me. Recently I’ve met some wonderful women in their 20’s and 30’s and as I near my 42nd birthday later this month, I can’t say I’d go back. (Funny though as the author of the article is just 49 but is in a very different stage of her life, all done with raising her kids while we’re just preparing to start that stage…we all do things at different times and I have no regrets having my 20’s and 30’s all to myself!)

    I wish I lived closer to the ‘Alma Birth Centre’ – I would certainly join that cool Midwife’s support group! She gives great advice. And – I’m in awe of people who really make time to help others (the vulnerable children’s charity). I need to do more of that in 2016.

      Yes Alma is sooo cool. Portland has a huge doula and midwife community, we’re very lucky!
