Let me tell you about this amazing week I had.
My family and friends came together and gave me a Blessing Way Ceremony. Rani, who has just started her own Blessings business, Unravel, lead us through this beautiful and highly emotional gathering of women, who, in my case, blessed me and my baby Birdie as we prepare for birth.
No photos from the blessing, sadly, as there we too much crying and laughing, and just being present for it all. But I did get a henna treatment afterwards as some ladies stuck around to eat and drink and gab. Blessed, indeed.
And I finally visited the Castle at the Crane Estate. Usually, we just go to the beach, my favorite place in the world, but I was finally pulled up the hill and it was everything I had hoped for and more.
We had the entire place to ourselves. I felt like a royal, with my two little princesses. A real gift for my birthday week.
