It has gotten downright chilly in some of our wintery northern hemisphere and if youâ€™re a new babywearing mama, choosing this seasonâ€™s outerwear may be presenting some special challenges.

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.

One of the things that fuels my passion for unschooling and my desire to spread the word about this option (what to some is an unheard-of idea), are the memories seared into my brain of children I love struggling with numbers on paper. It can be downright painful sometimes. No one likes to see a…read more >

I love handmade. I love local. Who doesnâ€™t love a beautiful hand-knit sweater, a table carved from a tree in the woods behind your house by a neighbor down the street, a home cooked jar of blackberry preserves tied up with ribbon by your old Aunt Sue? No one, thatâ€™s who! But in this day…read more >
