Around Town

We took a walk with my favorite Swiss friend (my only Swiss friend) around the children’s garden near us. It is a lovely little spot where kids can dig, feel plants, smell flowers, and discover lots of things. I grabbed a few Iphone photos while we were there- I was just loving the texture of the many things that grow!
Also, just a tip- wipe off you phone camera lens with your shirt every time before you take a photo- those things get yuuuuuucky and can make your pictures blurry or not as detailed.

I ran these through my favorite app called ‘A Color Story’ to make colors brighter. What beautiful texture our God has created for us to enjoy & for me, photograph!

Love,
Mama Sally

Our Travel Guide to Miami

We spent a couple of days in Miami over Valentine’s Day weekend. Luckily, this sunny, colorful city is just a few hours drive south of us. I did a little research beforehand but every guide that included activities for kids were not what we were looking for. I knew we would want to spend a lot of time outside and that we would not want to pay several hundred dollars to stand in line at busy touristy attractions. Some of those I am sure are great but not what we were looking for.

On our list and included below: Little Havana, South Beach, & Wynwood Walls.

If lifeguard stands could be tiny homes….these would be mine.

Wynwood Walls
The place where all my daydreams are fulfilled. This blend of COLOR, street art, and just plain visual interest makes me swoon.
