We're the Natalis. We've lived and loved Tacoma since 2008. Both originally from small towns, we love that Tacoma feels like a true community where people support one another in small and big ways.
Amy went to school to study Journalism and later received her Masters in Teaching. After eleven years of teaching Kindergarten, she became the Librarian of her school for the past three years. She's passionate about childhood literacy, school-readiness and family engagement and has recently "retired" from teaching to tackle the business and parenting full time.
Justin's career has been in leadership training and organizational development for over fourteen years. As of early 2017 he works for Multicare Health Systems here in Tacoma and absolutely loves it! When he gets a small break from work, small business owner, husband and daddy duties you might run into him in one of Tacoma's awesome craft beer bars enjoying a beverage or two.
We added to The Natali Nest with our son, Holden, born in the spring 2014. Lorelei joined us at Christmas in 2015 and our rainbow baby, August in the fall of 2017. We adore this crazy adventure called parenting. We love camping, hiking and being outdoors together. Our Weimaraner, Libby, is usually tagging along as well, keeping the chaos-meter high.
We are thrilled to be the owners of blooming kids as of July 2016. We have loved the store as customers and continue to try and see it from your point of view, making shopping easy and carrying high-quality items that parents, grandparents and care-givers need and want. Thank you for the warm welcome to the community. Please stop by and say hello!
