yookiwool blog author with son at the beach in santa monica

I’m a 30-something wife, animal-lover, Ph.D. neuroscientist-on-hiatus, and native Minnesotan currently raising a young son and daughter in  West Los Angeles, CA.

This is YOOKI, a blog where I share my thoughts on the topics that I’ve developed a passion for as I’ve grown into motherhood including woolies, cloth diapering, baby fashion, and modern-day hippie motherhood.

The blog’s name is a testament to both my heritage (my Grandma Yuki from Okinawa) as well as my love of wool used in both baby clothing and all other things (an Ewe or “yoo”  being a female sheep).

My hope is that the information in my blog inspires or helps you along your journey through parenthood too.
