I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it before, but I absolutely adore traveling. It is one of my major passions and I just can’t seem to get enough! It’s getting harder to balance travel and home life now that Little Man is getting older and into more activities, but since he loves being on the go as much as I do I am certain that exploration will always be a part of our lives. It seems like I’m always contemplating a trip, researching a new location, dreaming of places to go and brainstorming ways to make it happen.
Combine this with my love of art, and I’m super excited for the Christmas gift I just bought myself! :D No it’s not a trip, but a sweet token I’ve been eyeing for ages and finally decided to put aside the shopper-guilt and get: the gorgeous Places in America print from You and Me The Royal We.
The original artwork by Oliver Jeffers is a hand painted map of America on wood. It’s stunning! Prints are available for purchase and each one is signed by Oliver. The print comes with 102 pins to chart your path and domination of all places America: the orange pins are for states conquered, red is for headquarters and the blue are for next target or state of origin. Since visiting all of the National Parks is one of my life goals, this is just perfect!
Isn’t it lovely? I’m already thinking up DIY’d frames and ways to display it. :D
And speaking of excitement, we have a winner!! Congratulations Jennifer Alice Duran, you are the winner of the beautiful bracelet from Inspirations Jewelry! Check your email, please <3 Thank you to everyone who participated and thank you Inspirations Jewelry!
