I'm 25, I'll be 26 December 3rd, due around December 7th.
I'm married to my darling Alex, and we have a daughter, Annabelle, who will be 2 in June. We live in Northern Alberta, Canada with our two dogs, a mutt named Shiva and a Jack Russell Terrier named Chakra.
We're a vegan family, and I have dreams of living as self-sufficiently as possible by using every square inch of space on our suburban property to grow food.
I am a portrait photographer slowly building my business and I'm a writer, with two novels in progress.
I love baking bread, knitting, spinning, cooking and painting.
I am typically self-described as non-religious, though I find many teachings in Buddhism attractive.
I'm still breastfeeding Annabelle, and may end up tandem nursing if she hasn't decided to wean before then. We cloth diapered her for the first 6 months of her life, and intend on going the distance cloth diapering this little one.
We live in a place where there are very few natural-mothering types, and it's SO hard to find like-minded people, especially when I'm finding if someone asks me how we do things, they automatically get on the defensive and are offended by my answer, no matter how diplomatically I describe our parenting style. It's really frustrating.
Needless to say I'm really excited about really getting to know all of you
Please, introduce yourselves, PM each other, let's all make new friends!!
