Beautiful Mama-to-Be - Livin' the Good Life

On Sunday, Maya and I hosted a babyshower/blessingway for Reanna. We had a wonderful group of women gathered to celebrate Reanna's approaching motherhood and the big change that will ensue. We played NO games (yay!)  Instead we made her a "birthing necklace" to wear while she's in labor, signifying our love, prayers, good wishes, and encouraging thoughts during what will probably be her most challenging and rewarding endeavor yet (as it is for most women). Reanna's mother, Kathryn, helped with the food preparation, and we both worked on the fresh flower wreath for her hair to symbolize her fertility and her blossoming as a new mother with child. She was lovely!

Christina putting on the necklace we had just created. (Luckily, Christina, who owns a bead store, was there to properly put on the clasps and finish it off nicely!)


All of us laying protective hands on Reanna's "beautiful belly with child". The "juicy women energy" was palpable in that room, and Reanna feels it!  She glows.

Thanks for this, I wish I could have been there. It brought back memories of Maya's Blessing Way. Too bad I didn't think of leaving a bead for her. I'll have to charge Maya's with added energy for the special time 😉
I'm so glad you and Kathryn could both participate, I think it's important to have the grandmothers represented.
Blessed be your wonderful community.
