My favorite things: Sitting by a chiminea with someone I love, watching my neighbor's tree wondrously transform into golden droplets, riding my bike down by the river on a spring day, cheering loudly for my football son beneath the Friday night lights, writing a physical note which magically travels to a friend's doorstep via a postal stamp, sipping hot tea while staring at a vintage map imagining travel to faraway places.

Seasonal posters : "Sit By the Chiminea with Me", "Football Mom", "Hello, Bike". Letterpressed cards from my Vintage Kelsey Tabletop Press. Hundred Year Old Maps with a Touch of Real Calligraphy.

Good day = Riding my 1972 black Raleigh bike (with the original "ding dong" bell) to the post office to drop off a hand written letter.
