What's New: Naturally Chic

For the past year I have worked with the local cloth diaper company Chic Diapers, teaching classes on cloth diapering and assisting at special events. I also helped Chic maintain a basic inventory of diapers at a boutique near my home (it shares the same building as a Midwife clinic). Suddenly the owner of the boutique decided to take a different career path and announced that the store would be closing in a few days. Our local cloth diapering community was crushed as they would no longer have somewhere to look at diapers before purchasing them. 

The owner of the building extended a gracious offer for us to take over the boutique and within two weeks we went from being a small scale company that specialized in local in person delivery with a basic online storefront to one with a full blown retail space. The space needed a complete overhaul (it had no retail shelving and was wall papered in "80's country" we spent every spare moment here getting the place ready to go. 

While we still have aways to go we were able to have our soft opening this past Saturday. We will remain open our normal hours all week long and then have our Grand Opening extravaganza all next week (Monday-Satruday). I will be working at the shop every Tuesday evening, feel free to stop by and visit. Its been whirlwind and I am so blessed to have the partners I have, they are incredible. 

"Naturally Chic currently stocks a large variety of cloth diapers (BumGenius, SoftBums, AppleCheeks etc, with plans to add more), baby carriers such as Lillebaby (soft structure) and Girasol (woven wraps), as well as amber teething necklaces and accesories. We have plans to greatly expand our babywearing (babycarriers) selection and to also carry nursing supplies. We will work to become a "one stop shop" for all your "naturally" inclined parenting needs. If you have any ideas of product you would like to see just let us know."

Off to Spain

Two weeks we said goodbye to G.'s sister as she left to serve a LDS mission in Spain. It was an incredible but bittersweet weekend as we saw so much family that we usually don't get to see all at once. I wouldn't normally post the food but I am so impressed at how many people were fed at the farewell. My sister and I made 14 loaves of bread and purchased four more and had only two loaves left after everyone was gone. 

The next morning we said our goodbyes at the airport. Everyone was doing great until Mr. B began to cry and then we all lost it pretty fast. He loves her so much and was so sad to see her go. He is doing better now and excitedly talks about his Aunt on a mission when he sees her picture displayed on our mantle. 

So Blessed

Canyon Adventure

We may have been a little crazy heading up to the mountains to kayak on a 55 degree day in April but we wanted to get in some "summer activities" with G.'s sister before she left to serve a LDS mission. She brought along a long time friend and we all had a blast. I bundled myself up like it was snowing while those crazy girls decided shorts would be appropriate.

After kayaking G.'s mom met up with us at a campground and we roasted hot dogs and made S'mores. We all had a wonderful time and feel so blessed that we got to have that time together as a family before she leaves.
