We moved to this sweet, sleepy little town 8 years ago (can’t believe it’s been that long). My husband was transferred to the Waco area with his job. We weren’t crazy about the area, but we liked that we were so close to Dallas & Austin.
We delivered all three of our children in Austin at New Life Birthing Center with Mari Mikel Penn.
After a year of living in the area, we found this magical little farm house in the country and decided this was the place we would stay while our babies are young. :)
For a long time we felt very alone here, few friends, no healthy food available and a very small selection of the types of experiences we were hoping to make available to our babies. We loved the simple farm life this house and town could provide, but past that we found the area lacking in culture and color. We would drive the hour a half to Austin for food, entertainment, summer schools, toys (waldorf stores) etc…
I was reading Amazing Grace by David Wolfe and Nick Good and the main thing I gathered from that book was that
We create our reality, everything we are and are experiencing is a result of our thoughts. So, I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and change my reality. I became determined to make this town everything I would find in Asheville or Boulder (where I wanted to be:)

Finding Magic in this ordinary town :)
If I hadn’t overcome my fears, If I hadn’t ignored all the voices telling me
“this will NEVER WORK IN LORENA, TX”
then I would never have met all of these amazing people and I would be living in this town and wishing I was somewhere else.
” Enchanted Cedar is proof that with a strong vision (that you can hold regardless of what’s happening around you) and the right intention, absolutely anything is possible”
We still have a long way to go, but we are on our way to creating a magical local reality!
My magic in a bottle

It fills my heart with gratitude to see my babies enjoying the music, community and healthy food that this enchanting place has provided for them. #blessed
