This past weekend I was eternally blessed by a handful of positive, beautiful women that support me and the way that my family chooses to welcome our babies. Most of the moms have had their babies at home, a few of them are also expecting. So what is a Blessingway? This is the way my friend Sarah described it: A gathering of women celebrating the miracle of birth, pregnancy, motherhood and womanhood....but definitely NOT like a traditional baby shower!!
I was looking for a way to honor this pregnancy and our Little Intruder, but something different than I had ever done. I really *loved* the idea of getting henna on my belly and told a few friends. One of those friends suggested I research Blessingway's. A Blessingway can be personalized in so many different ways - I wanted one that everyone would feel comfortable at. I decided not to burn incense, not to do any chants and not to put burnt sage on my friends foreheads. *smile* Just a little out of my comfort zone and that of most of my friends.
My blessingway was simple, comfortable and just PERFECT! I would love to share pictures with you from my special day.
