I don't have children, but I try and get gifts I think my friends' children will enjoy. And I totally think Happy Bungalow and Little Alouette are great gifts. (but who knows, chime in if you have kids & feel differently)
And coupled with barn bag I made of a friends' grandma's fabric, the toys made it a sweet gift. Especially because everyone has a unicorn on their farm these days, right?
In the midst of the polar vortex I ventured north to visit the new baby Roman and forthcoming baby Molly. It was awesome.
