From Texas to Idaho
What in the world is a Texas girl doing in the cold lands of Idaho? She simply adores her husband and would follow him anywhere! When an opportunity came along that we could not pass up we loaded up our lives and moseyed across the United States to our new home. Saying it that way sounds much easier than it actually was, in fact my husband moved 4 months before my children and I which led to some pretty long and hard months of single parneting, missing my love and finishing up with the doula clients I had promised to serve. In that time I learned a lot about patience and longing. Waiting to be reunited plus single pareting developed patience I could never have gained alone. I also dug deep and found strength that had been there just unnecessary when there is another parent to help with all things from dinner and boo boos to childcare and managing the home while I work. I even bucked up the courage to take a trip Austin, the Texas State Capital and enjoy a little bit of our home and history before we left. I never would have guessed we would leave the place we were both born and raised, leave our family and friends and all things Texas but here we are and we are really loving it so far. The beautiful tall trees, rolling hills, picturesque downtown and friendly community have been an amazing welcome to Idaho. We even enjoyed our first SNOW!!! With 4 born and raised Texas kids it would huge! We all played until 11 o'clock the first night and it was worth every second. As winter approaches we are learning what it means to be prepared to leave the house in the cold and thinking about snow tires and yak trax. I am so excited to pursue my love off all things birth, babies and breastfeeding here on the Palouse. I look forward to serving families in their postpartum needs as well as birth and breastfeeding classes and belly binding. Stay tuned for more blogs and good articles filled with evidence and encouragment for families.
