Welcome to Our Community

As someone who’s been blogging for almost four years now, the launch of a new blog is still as exciting as Christmas morning when you’re five. For me, this blog is getting back to where I started; with babies, small children, and everything that goes along with them. My views, of course, have changed a lot since then and I’ve brought a few friends along for the ride, but the possibilities at this point are endless! It’s a fresh clean notebook just waiting to be filled with thoughts and scribbles, dreams and pictures.

I started blogging back at a domain called Raising Peanuts when my son was just a year old. I was a stay at home mom looking for connections to not only the outside world, but to a world where people thought the same way I did. I was amazed at what I found – other moms sharing their lives, inspiring a new generation of homemakers. Soon I started my second (and still current) blog at Naturally Knocked Up.com in the fall of 2008. The women I’ve met through that site have helped me grow in ways I’ve never imagined. In fact, one of my readers is the reason I’ve gotten to know so many of my local natural mom friends. A few of these girls are now contributors here at Natural Living Moms.

I have great dreams for this blog. Big dreams, little dreams, dreams that include you, dreams that include my friends.

I want this to be not only a place on inspiration, but a place of conversation.
