Mabon — The Autumnal Equinox (via svadhisthana)

Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox, is always a Sabbat that is special to me. It's the first Sabbat I ever celebrated, so it's like an "anniversary" to me.

A baby blessing (via My Gen Y Family)

A baby blessing Tbe baby blessing on Sunday for Siena was beautiful and things turned out better than I could have imagined! It was a hectic week getting ready for family to come in town and taking care of the baby. I think she was extra cranky from not getting much attention for a few days while I was doing things around the house. Then our garage door opener broke and a couple days later our furnace heater went out. Not to mention the leaky water faucet out fr … Read More
