Momma of a 16 month old moving to Gainesville

Hello mommas!

We are moving to Gainesville next month all the way from Texas! My daughter is 16 months old and a hoot at this age! She is our only one for now.

We are looking to make new friends. I do work from home but always looking for new friends, play dates, and fun activities to do.

We are somewhat crunchy aka AP, extended BF, use EO and other hollistic methods, try to be organic when budget allows, BW, but all around just love to explore and have fun.
