| April 15, 2013

Several years ago, I had the privilege of traveling to Japan during cherry blossom season (mid-March through early May).

Safari is a classic nursery theme that I happily get requests for over and over. Gentle giraffes and adorable elephants are images many parents (and I!) love to see in children’s rooms.

London has been calling. The Olympics have just wrapped up, and I’m about to embark on a little trip to see dear friends that live in London. I took my first trip to London when I was in my early 20s with my fabulous mother. We did the typical round of touristy things that most […]
