I just wanted to touch base and say hello. I saw that you recently joined the Natural Families Network here on C&NN Connect and I wanted to welcome you to the group! I LOVE what I see in the pictures of your efforts in Santa Barbara -- fantastic! I live in San Diego, so next time I'm up in the area (who knows when!)
