Mindful Momma

http://mindfulmomma.com

Hi! My name is Micaela and I’m a work-from-home Mom living in Minneapolis, MN with my husband and our two boys. I started this blog (way back in 2006!) as a way to help me make sense of all the confusing and sometimes scary information about green and healthy living that I was confronted with as a parent. It was part creative outlet and part educational platform….both with a steep learning curve!
