From life springs eternal

We planted our new son's placenta under an apricot tree. Cyrus officiated a simple ceremony as we offered a bouquet of flowers from our yard and a scattering of sacred sage leaves from each of our hands followed by a handful of compost on top to thank the placenta for it's work of protecting and nourishing our new baby while he grew big and strong inside me. What an amazing feat to accomplish!
