Vivan las mujeres and viva Long Beach Breastfeeds!

We had a great time today at the ¡VIVAN LAS MUJERES! Festival at the Museum of Latin American Art.

We have to say a big, love-filled THANK YOU to all our wonderful volunteers: Nicole, Melissa, Di, Chantal, and strong-man Mark. And bumps to our sister of BabywearingLB, and table neighbors: Amanda, Micah, Sheila, Liz, and Rocio. Love this community.

We got to roll out our banner and business cards, courtesy of wonderful local mama & artist, Melissa H. – thanks sister!

We got to meet members of our community, talk about breastfeeding, and make those personal connections that are so key. We feasted our eyes on art, and on the inspiring sounds & movements of Tropicaleiza Dance Company – these strong, powerful bateria musicians and dancers had us hooked! We couldn’t take our eyes off them and we couldn’t help but move our bodies. Ain’t too good for a food truck – we ate some crazy good Crispy Cuban. And we connected with our community!!!
