This evening I find myself unwinding after my first day of midwifery school. I got a message through Facebook from my friend Sarah in Ashland, Oregon saying,"What? Nominated for most awesome doula? Why on earth haven't I seen this until now?"  I had no idea what she was talking about. But apparently I was nominated for Most Awesome Doula in Los Angeles through Red Tricycle/   Here's the link, in case you'd like to VOTE and help a sister out  

This is a huge marker for me right now in my life. I've recently come to terms with all the effort and painful experiences I've willingly gone through in order to get where I am.  This is where the fruits of my labor begin to drop, all over the damn place, to the point that a friend all the way in Oregon has to give me a virtual nudge to make me notice. 

I feel honored that someone took the time to nominate me. I see colleagues on the list who have been in the field for many more years than I have, who have given birth, etc.  This is for real, I'm right up there with them. Hey we'll see what happens! I could win $500 at, a flip camera or a A Large Organic Plush Winnie-the-Pooh!
