Something Worth Seeing…Tattoos

Nataly, a long time BWF fan, knows that I love tattoos. Even though I don’t have any, I admire people who are confident enough to express themselves in such a drastic, artistic way. To not care what others think and do what they feel is right…well, I’m always a fan of that! I also appreciate […]

You may have noticed Ryan Gosling showing up in your Google Reader or Facebook news feed, along with a caption that starts with, “Hey Girl…”. They have recently caught on in the natural birth community and some even got me to chuckle and shake my head. I am a huge Ryan Gosling fan. He won […]
