Well, this marks my last post for the My Natural Family blog. It’s pretty bittersweet: I’m leaving circle ME as a full-time social marketing specialist because I was accepted into UNL’s Marriage and Family Therapy program as a full-time graduate student. I found out I was accepted about a week after I found out I was pregnant. Both bits of news came as total surprises. Needless to say, April was one rollercoaster of a month.
I’m excited for life’s next big adventure and the movement towards my dream of working as a family therapist, but also am sad to have to say goodbye to circle ME and all the wonderful people who work here. I’ll be around to teach the diaper ME classes (can you believe it? I started out knowing diddly about cloth diapering and now I know enough to talk about them for a whole hour and then some!) and help with the big events (like I’d miss a re-diaper sale), but I sure will miss this place!
I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have found circle ME and been blessed to work here, even it was only for a short 8 months. Had I not come across the Brysons and their business, I would never have had the knowledge or know-how to cloth diaper my own children, and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have had the education or courage necessary to plan for a natural birth at the new birthing center in Bellevue, and eventually a home birth for the next kiddo. This place is such an amazing resource for families here in Lincoln, and I’m glad I can keep coming back for support and guidance as a customer if not work here as an employee.
Stay tuned for the new, updated blog from circle ME! It will be written by Julia, the newest natural-minded Mama to join the staff. She is a wealth of information on all things natural family and I promise you won’t want to miss it! 🙂
