I wish all of you good mamas a beautiful day! I know that some of you grew up without your biological mom, some that weren’t there due to their own inabilities, and mothers that were abusive. For this I’m sorry. I send you pure love.
Luckily, my mom has always been there for me. My mom is a good woman, a strong woman. She endured much as she supported us. Working two jobs during Christmas seasons to provide for us. She made sure we were taken care of and still does to this day.
Thankfully, I inherited her work ethics among her many positive traits. I love you mom!
May you celebrate the good mothers in your life! May you have peace and understanding, even heal from the damage if the mothers in your life were downright awful.
Do you want a natural childbirth?
Do you want your partner (or a friend, or family member) to be your coach & labor/doula support?
Do you want to give your baby the best start? Of course you do!
Classes include, but not limited to, relaxation practice, simple pregnancy exercises to encourage optimal fetal positioning as it makes for an easier labor & birth, prenatal and postpartum nutrition (eating foods that help grow a healthy baby and level out postpartum hormones), breastfeeding, informed consent and positive communications for a satisfying birth experience.
Even though the mountain pass drive was treacherous and both hands were on the wheel, I’m grateful that I was able to deliver some Christmas gifts to my daughter and grandbabies (I have two). I played Santa in true “flying” through the snow fashion!
May this Solstice bring comfort and safety; may you honor this winter season. ❄️
Lots of Love, Alda Mills💙
It’s a turkey recipe created by Suzanne Somers as I have a few of her cook books. Did you know she’s a fabulous chef? I adore her and her entrepreneurial spirit. The turkey is accompanied by the most delicious sausage stuffing!
But, this year I am cooking a small tarragon turkey roast that is cooking right now in a crock pot (slow cooker). And, I’m foregoing the sausage stuffing.
I had to rethink my traditional Thanksgiving dinner foods, even Thanksgiving breakfast. I’m on call for two births, so I must conserve my energy. It’s exciting to think that I started my midwife apprenticeship one year ago, November 2016!
My boys are getting used to the idea of this change and I must say that it’s been nice to be able to take 5 several times today.
My first born even made two vegan pumpkin pies to help me out. Can’t wait to taste it with the coconut whipped cream! No, I’m not vegan just dairy free.
I hope this day finds you relaxing and enjoying good food as you’re surrounded by those you love! I’ll be eating soon with my two handsome boys and beautiful little girl.
Happy Thanksgiving & Much Love, ~Alda Mills
Happy Halloween! One of my favorite celebrations of the year. Why? It’s fun with no expectations. And, I seriously love candy. Sugary, crunchy, chewy candy. Skittles, starbursts, Swedish fish, sprees, nerds, fireballs. Sweet & sour is the bomb! I don’t allow myself to indulge in candy very often anymore as sugar physically & internally hurts my body. But, tonight I partake. May my body tolerate.
As you know, Halloween is rich in history. Its origins run deep. I have read about religious meanings and pagan rituals. They say the veil is thinnest on All Hallows’ Eve.
What ever happened to the shouting at the top of your lungs, “TRICK OR TREAT?!” When you approach my door, BEWARE! Standing in my power is, however, electrifying.
