Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Anna and I am a first time mom to a 8 month lil boy. I live in Middle TN area and am looking to learn more about natural living, and everything associated with it. I have not had much luck with finding like-minded people in my geographic area. Most people I have met are formula feeding, vaccine heavy and think that I am crazy for doing things differently - breastfeeding, baby wearing and not so heavy on vaccines.
My husband and I love everything to do with the outdoors - hiking, biking, camping, caving... I also love crafting and making anything I can, along with cooking and gardening (what I can on our little patio). I am currently a stay at home mom, though I will no doubt have to return to the work force somettime soon, unfortunatly.
