Hours passed like minutes and at 5:45pm that evening I birthed our son(sun) into Sam's hands in a birthing pool in our living room. Just the two of us and our doula were present. The atmosphere was calm and totally us. No unneeded energy buzzing around the room. I laid there on the edge of the bath rubbing my newborns back and kissing his velvet hair.
We had a son!
And we couldn't believe it.
I couldn’t believe it! After months of strain I finally had a big beautiful win in the form of realising the beautiful community I’ve got cheering me on over here. So I just wanted to say ‘Thank you!’ for supporting Barefoot Wanderer and our very sloooooow way of doing fashion. I love that you love supporting small and that you choose to care for the earth over the noise of harmful fashion trends.
What a crazy beautiful few months it’s been. I have been pushing myself harder than ever, working five days a week at two different ‘real jobs’ and frying my brain on Barefoot Wanderer when my babies lay their heads to rest at night.
"Holy Guacamole we bought a bus!!!!! Wow that happened quicker than I thought it would. After months of refreshing gumtree ads and messaging bus owners we finally made the jump into bus ownership 2.0. The magnitude of the job ahead of us certainly hasn’t sunken in yet. Although we worked hard on Lola getting her ready for our family of 5 to hit the road two years ago now (two years already! time fly’s!), the jobs we carried out on that bus is nothing compared to what we have ahead of us now."
