Make your home healthy and green!

Just a few days before the Green Festival comes to town, we had a wonderful September meeting on the topic of "Green Home, Healthy Home."

A huge thanks to Greenproofer Michelle Winters and holistic health coach Beth Donnelly of The Regal Fig to talk to us about healthy, non-toxic products and strategies for the home. We talked about being healthy and green from the inside out, including home furnishings, fabrics and cleaners as well as skincare and food. Beth was kind enough to bring food-grade skincare samples from new mompreneur Greenplicity and Go Chews snacks from local vendor Momme Meals, and she'll share her new E-book with us as well.

Thanks to both speakers for coming all the way to talk to us and to everyone who contributed to the discussion!

Motherblessing for fall mamas

What a delight to celebrate four of our expectant mamas last month! We honored them as they make a big transition in their lives to first-time mom, second-time mom, and third-time mom. It was a lovely evening of enjoying tasty snacks, sharing hopes and fears, and supporting one another. And lots of laughter. And some hand and shoulder massage.

Thanks to all who joined in! And good luck to the mamas!
