Hey back atcha!
I'm Julie, in Portland, and I'm currently co-leading the new Portland Area chapter of the Holistic Moms Network -- we have a lot of activities planned to get mamas and kiddos together to help our community grow and to offer resources and support! I have a 7yo first grader in school (Hall) and a 4yo who is home with me full time.
Next week, the HMN chapter has a few things planned. We're meeting at Peekaboo (Dana Warp Mill in Westbrook) for their monthly clothing swap. It goes on all day, but many HMN mamas arrive 10:30ish with a packed snack/lunch and stay until they need to head home for naps.
On Friday, we have a $5 deal at Greenlight Studio (corner of Darmouth and Forest Ave in Portland) where we'll be playing and hanging out drinking coffee and the HMN chapter will be sponsoring a Valentine's Day themed craft (not sure what that is yet... LOL)
On the evening of the 30th, we're hosting a Moms Night Out at the Veranda Noodle Bar on Veranda Street in Portland at 6pm.
