There’s a new post on Daughter on Duty.
I loved being pregnant. Well, after the nausea was over, and before I felt like an elephant. Both my babies were plus-size, and both stayed in the safety of the womb beyond my need for them to move out. By the time they breathed their first breaths I had no mixed feelings about the end of the pregnancy: cut that cord, time to meet the future.
I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.

Wow, Gretchen! Will look forward to connecting in the near future. Blessings during this in between time.
