california treasures


The sweetest friend has sent me thoughtful treasures all the way from the coastline of California.  It was such a wonderful mail day to open a package from Carissa, seeing her carefully chosen pieces of her home state for Sofia to discover and enjoy.  Seashells, sand, saltwater taffy and gorgeous hand drawn map to show exactly where it originated - we couldn't be more grateful.  I'm looking forward to the day we can get our little ones together and sit over a cup of tea.

    I love the idea of drawing a map of where everything is from.
    It makes it that more special!

  5. The sand in the jar is such a sweet idea. Makes me want to head to the beach right now with jars to fill for all my landlocked babies.

  8. So very special. When the nightly news screeches out all the hatred in the world I am reassured by such beautiful acts. This planet is full of warm, loving and giving human beings. Sigh :) x
