Jen's Birthday Picnic Jen's Birthday Picnic-4 Jen's Birthday Picnic-3 Jen's Birthday Picnic-2This is what the afternoon before my water broke looked like: a birthday picnic and intention circle at Bronson Park, celebrating  my friend, Jen. 

Healthy snacks, some Tarot/spirit animals and a guided intention setting session. I pulled this goose card. Hours later I was waking with a big surprise.

I’m finishing up my birth story and will post it on Monday. It was such an interesting experience and it feels a little strange to me to write about. Thank you for your love. This is a big and beautiful challenge.  The support is invaluable. 

  • Can’t wait to read the birth story. Lovely pics as usual! Love that you got that goose card!

  • Beautiful pictures! I can’t wait to hear more about Grant.

    • Thank you, Becca. I am SO looking forward to getting out again and taking photos of stuff outside of my home! ha!

  • Ahh, love these pictures and the great outdoors feel. 🙂 I can’t wait to read your birth story- so excited!! Sending love your way, my friend, and I hope you have a great weekend!! xoxo

    • Thank you, Abby! I appreciate the love! This is a big change! 🙂 That WAS a really nice way to transition into motherhood-a last day with friends before becoming a mother!

    I can’t wait to read the story Monday. And I must say I’m super jealous…I induced both my kids so I never experienced going into labor.

    • Thank you, Krista! Well, you’ll see that it was a mixed experience! XO

  • Nicole B.

    Oh I cannot wait to read the story of his birth! Each and every one is so unique and life changing. You’ll remember it forever. Hoping you’re getting lots of rest!

    • I love reading birth stories and that’s the only reason I’m sharing mine. I have read so many and each is so interesting to me! Thank you! I’m resting in bursts. It takes getting used to but it’s coming along! 🙂

  • How sweet that you were at a birthday celebration right before you started going into labor. That will be a great story for you to tell Grant when he gets older 🙂 Hope you’re both well Christina! Happy weekend!
