Robin's First Time to Europe

Robin Quinn stayed with us for a spell during her first trip to Europe. Pretty incredible to see things new again through her eyes. She's on the train to Spain now. Can't wait to re-connect with her in Barcelona next week to feel more of her adventure energy.

These Paris friends had their first child recently. Had lunch at their flat last week and stoked out on how social their baby, Violette, was... cooing and smiling. This portrait is before Violette. Bright colors with a calm faces soon to become parents.
