But I'll be the first to admit that a birth story isn't easy to write!

Wise Woman Circle: The Edge of …

New Years Resolutions Nashville Womens Circle

For the past few years, my dreams have offered me a word for the new year. A few years ago, it was "enough." "Encircled" and "engaged" have anchored my resolutions, too. So far, the dream goddesses are holding out on me for 2013, but "edge" seemed a fitting theme for the first seasonal woman's circle of the year.
