Hello, dear community!
Well, here we are…a month before my sweet babe’s “due-ish” date, and gearing up to sign off for my maternity leave at the end of this week.
For the past few months, my business manager Amy and I have been working on getting all of my business “ducks in a row” so to speak, so that I can sign offline with ease and be fully present for this massive transition period in my life.
There are a lot of moving pieces to running a partially online/partially virtual business, as well as holding space for a yearlong circle…and one of the things we’ve been thinking about is the communication with you all, my beloved newsletter community – some of who’ve been on this journey with me from the beginning, 7+ years ago!
Be prepared to still hear from me while I’m on leave, just not in real time…meaning I’ll be pre-writing/recycling past articles that I feel are worth tuning into again. :)
We’ll also update you on the status of our sweet babe’s arrival after we’ve hunkered down into the 4th trimester a bit.
I also want to give voice at how grateful I am to those who are stepping in to support the flow of this sweet biz babe of mine while I’m away…
Monica Lucero, one of my dearest friends and our “Soulstice Sisterhood Retreat Doula” who’s been assisting my circles for the past 4 years now, will be leading one of our seasonal retreats, as well as teaching one of the Leadership Training calls.
And Amy, my incredibly supportive business manager (who’s also a business strategist) will be offering her support/wisdom to my clients while I’m away, as well as keeping up with the daily/weekly/monthly operations.
To both of you, I say THANK YOU, thank you, thank you!
I also want to thank my dear clients and circle participants for being so understanding and supportive of the shifts that were necessary to make this year (I love you and value your presence in our cherished circle SO much!) and to YOU all for going on this journey with me. I so appreciate your presence as well and hope you’re inspired by what we send your way while I’m on leave.
For now, that’s it…just giving you a little heads up on what to expect in the coming months, and sharing my appreciation for you all and for the sweet mystery of this journey of life that we’re all on.
With deep love and gratitude for being here, and being you,
P.S., not sure if you know this, but a little side passion project of mine has been handcrafting vintage + nature-inspired jewelry for the past 10 years. I held a little “flash sale” of sorts on FB/Insta last week, have a few pieces left and am extending the sale to the end of this week. All proceeds will go towards my postpartum recovery so that I can show up as fully as possible for my babe, family and extended community in the months to come. Click HERE to view the remaining pieces and PM me if one is calling your name! <3
