Weekend Reading

Hello everyone, I’ve returned from Peru! I arrived home yesterday and settled back in with a hot bath and a snuggle with my kids. What an adventure! I will share some photographs from my trip to the Sacred Valley soon. And I simply cannot wait to share images of the textiles I saw when I was there. Color and pattern like I’ve never seen!

Meanwhile it’s good to be home, I have no long distance travel plans for the fall so I’ll be enjoying the season here in my hometown. September and October are my favorite months in wine country, and I’ll be out and about enjoying it all!
