Hi everyone, hope you are all well! California is slowly opening up again and this week I was able to dine with friends inside a restaurant and allow our teens to ride their bikes to town as long as they continue to follow the safety precautions in place. It feels good to have life slowly returning to what we once knew with more freedom of movement and less restrictions on socialization.

This summer will still be sleepy for us. I have one road trip planned, I’m hoping to visit a few towns on the west coast here in California and up in Oregon in July but I have no international travel plans yet. But that’s okay, because I’ve been steadily adding more travel art to my print shop and the slower pace has given me extra time to focus on that!
