I spent this last weekend with Kaia at the Southeast Women’s Herb Conference. And what a wonderful weekend it was!! Though the wind threatened to blow our tent away a few times, Kaia came through her first conference with a big smile on her face and asked to go again next year. She went with me to learn about aromatherapy and candle making, and then headed off to play with friends while I went to classes on fermentation, the respiratory system, biodynamic gardening, and more. We danced the night away at a bhangra/bollywood party. We fell in love the Rising Appalachia (if you haven’t heard their music, you should get a CD right now!!!). It was a great mother/daughter weekend!
