hi all,

my name is viv, i am a sahm to two kids. i have a total of five but my older grrls have left my nest to try things out at their dads.

we live in the sunny okanagan in bc canada and it is absolute paradise here

i am not sure of all the emoticons here, so you may have to bear with my :---: emotions, till i get the hang of things.

i have been a lay doula for going on 2 years. i like it a lot and hope to make it a more full time endevour (sp) once my ydd3 is a bit older. for now i am happy to take clients as i will and let my heart be my guide.

i look forward to spending some time here and making good friends

Welcome, Viv, from a fellow-doula. I do postpartum work and, like you, only take on jobs that fit neatly into my primary role as SAHM. I hate to show my ignorance, but where is Okanagan? I've only been to Canada once and loved it. We're in the midst of planning a trip to Nova Scotia this summer.

Well, I hope to "see" you around! :cool

the okanagan is in the southeastern corner of british columbia. it is a lush valley, filled with orchards and vineyards. lots of organic fruit, i have three trees of my own two apple, one cherry.

we are right near the border of washington state.

we have the only desert in canada 20 minutes away from us,
yet our little town is neestled between two lakes.

i have never been back east any further than manitoba, where my dh is from.

where are you at?

hugs, viv
