Lots of good news

We're finally back home for good, after being away almost all summer! We actually got home a day later than planned. Our flight home was overbooked, so we volunteered to be bumped. In addition to flight vouchers, we got to spend an extra night & day in downtown Salt Lake City, paid for by Delta Airlines.

Tomorrow evening I'm giving a presentation about natural birth for C.H.O.I.C.E.S. Come join me at 5:30 pm at the West Lafayette Public Library!

Other good news: yesterday was our 12th wedding anniversary! We didn't do much, since we were recovering from jet lag and two very busy weeks of visiting family. But earlier this summer we celebrated with dinner at Ze Kitchen Galerie in Paris. The food was really, really, really good...but I've actually had just as good of food for a much better price in other places in France. Such as the Restaurant du Golf near Royan. Mmmmm....

And finally, Zari has a secret that she wants to share with you:

    Congrats, Rixa!!! I rarely comment, but I'm an avid follower of your blog (and I have one of your slings!). Zari and Dio are about 6 months younger than my daughter and son, so it seems like we have so much in common (aside from the similar values/views when it comes to birth). Here's to an uneventful pregnancy and a lovely birth!
