Happy Friday guys! I’m so excited to enjoy KL this weekend…I’m really starting to fall in love with it here. I had a few key moments yesterday where I just thought “yes, this feels good” like when I helped guide a lovely couple visiting from Europe (felt like such a local), discovered a Colombian restaurant (hello soul food!), and enjoyed dinner under a canopy while it rained like crazy and the skies turned white with lightning. I recently made a list of things to see and do in/near the city and the goal is to do at least one of them each weekend that we are home. Top on the list is to visit a palm oil plantation so when I saw this vintage pattern of palm tree varieties I was instantly attracted to it. We’ll see what we cross off the list this weekend. I hope you have a great one!
This week’s three rad links…
• at least one xmas gift for joe is taken care of with this new kind of wallet
• it’s not too late to celebrate + shop for fair trade month
• great feature on one of my fave london shops/makers
. they opened a second store in our neighborhood one week before we moved – darn!

I’ve been on total vacation mode for nearly two weeks and I just realized that I never picked a winner for the Marrakech souvenir giveaway! Please excuse me, I haven’t been my internet-self as of late but thanks to this handy site I was able to pick the lucky winner in a flash (thanks for the tip, Marianne!). I really enjoyed reading about your favorite travel souvenirs and I wish that I had a little something to give each of you but alas, the tassel will find a new happy home with…..drum roll please…..Leah! I can’t wait to see what you do with it. Be sure to check your inbox for an email from me :)
I also realized that I better enjoy the rest of the time off (and the excuse for missing to-do tasks) because March is going to be one busy month. Two and a half more days of palm trees, sunshine, drinks with friends, and whatever else we want… LA, I’m going to relish you like there is no tomorrow!
