I came to Boba this summer to support blogging and international online advocacy for babywearing. But, my history with Boba is a longer, more personal one.
I met Robert and Elizabeth Antunovic, and their beautiful children, when I moved in next door to them on a small street in North Boulder a couple of years ago. I was working as the media and communications director for an international sustainability company. Naturally, we found ourselves talking about online engagement, media and public relations, and lots of sustainability issues, usually while hanging out in the grass with the kids, or sharing watermelon on the steps between our homes.
Babywearing, natural parenting and family travel are all things Iâ€™ve been inspired by and have learned a lot about through my friendship with the Antunovic family and working with the awesome Boba team while researching articles and more. Iâ€™m happy to be helping to spread the word about the benefits and mission of Boba Family and babywearing through my blog and PR work.
Born and raised in Lansing, Michigan, I lived in Boulder for 12 years before relocating to Chile in 2011. I live with my partner, Pablo and we have a new baby (our first), a darling daughter named Violeta. We live in a small beach community and I work freelance supporting socially and environmentally beneficial business projects through pr/communications work, express myself creatively through singing, writing, painting and ceramics, and am embracing the biggest, most important role of my life: being a mother.
We are excited to announce something special we’ve been working on for all you babywearing moms who want the perfect outer layer for you and babe to enjoy cooler weather comfortably (and stylishly). Boba Vest has arrived. This high quality, thoughtfully crafted baby carrier cover fits over you, your little and your Boba Carrier just…read more >
I recently wrote a post about going expat. I recently gave birth to my first child living here in Chile with my Chilean partner. Itâ€™s magical, and itâ€™s hard. My post mostly focused on the positive side of things, the how-toâ€™s, etc. Today, I took a little photo tour of my friendsâ€™ childrenâ€™s Halloween costumes…read more >
Sitting here today, watching the southern hemisphere spring emerge, I started thinking of the leaves changing, flowers budding, things growing just as my young baby is growing before my eyes. I thought of my trip back to Boulder last summer and how I plucked some leaves to steal back with me to a wintery Chile…read more >
This morning, I awoke to my nearly 16-week-old little girl scooting closer and nuzzling in for her morning wake-up nurse. A couple hours later, we settled into the rocking chair for a nice, long mid-morning feeding cuddle. This afternoon, we nursed and napped. Tonight, we will nurse to sleep. It is beautiful and precious to…read more >
