622634_10151937295511900_2092363348_oMy name is Lani Axman.

I’m a mom of five, book author, lover of plants, and a yogini.  In December of 2007, I started this blog as an outlet for my passionate drive to share what I learned and loved about birth. I also write here about mothering, spirituality, natural health, homeschooling, managing mental illness, and whatever else I feel impressed to write about.
