Erin, did you work for New Pi? My husband worked there for awhile.
Anyone going to the CSA Fair this Saturday? I'm going to try and make it!
Hi everyone! it's great to meet you all.
I'm a almost SAHM (i'm doing a little research for my doc, but i am a long way from done) who lives near Coon Rapids, a little town about and hour north west of DSM. I am also new to the area, i moved here from WV in January with my husband of 10 years and our (hopefully) 1st son who is now 9 months old. It was a hard winter but now that spring is here, i am falling in love with Iowa.
I am starting my first full fledged garden- we have been moving and apartment living until now and i have only ever done a few containers or a little patch. We are also pretty crunchy- basically trying to live simply and well on very little. I also love draw, sew and cook vegetarian and vegan foods and read- esoteric stuff for my degree as well as anything else i can get my hands on, although my son just loves to get his hands on books, which can be challenging.
I would love to connect more with more moms with more eclectic points of view- people here have been very welcoming (despite what i was told), but unfortunately, most people in similar situations to me have pretty mainstream views.
