For the love of our planet

Earth Hour is tonight, Saturday, March 31st from 8:30pm-9:30pm; it doesn't matter what time zone you are in. This is not an event that is supposed to cure global warming or fix the energy crisis. The sole purpose of this is to "inspire all of us to make positive environmental changes in our lives." Please take part in this if you can; it is a lot of fun to turn the lights out, even for an hour and sit, read, or even play a board game in candlelight. I love being part of an event that I know people from all over the world (130 countries) are collectively experiencing and participating in. One of the greatest gifts social media has given us is the ability to connect the human race and come together to think, discuss and solve the problems that we all are facing within our world.

Family Vacation

My family and I will be on vacation in Florida and Georgia for the next two weeks. My honey and I will be celebrating our five year anniversary along with Lochlan's second birthday. I can't believe my baby is already two. Crazy that almost two years ago I was in labor and about to experience the greatest joy and love on earth. I truly feel blessed.

I will not be posting while we are away, unless something HAS to be said. See you in a few weeks!!

Cesarean Rates

This website has collected data from all 50 states on their hospitals cesarean rates to birth ratio. It's hard to ignore this epidemic when the facts are staring you in the face. Not every cesarean is medically necessary. It's time for women to take birth back into their own hands and stop trusting that Doctor's have our best interest at heart.

Check this link out for Nevada's cesarean rates. It is quite upsetting.

“There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They don’t ask for it, it simply invades them. Accumulates like clouds on the horizon and passes through, carrying the child with it.”
