Storykins // This is San Francisco

Our family will be moving from San Francisco to Germany soon, and since my son loves books, I decided to get him This is San Francisco by Miroslav Sasek, the Czech artist, illustrator and author of the wonderful ‘This is’ series of Children’s Books. I thought it would be fun for us to read the charming book together and explore all of the places in the book that capture his interest and imagination before moving.

So… Last weekend I packed my favorite Je t’aime tote (in my opinion, a perfect Valentine’s Day gift) with my son’s This is San Francisco book, his Fisher Price camera and several layers of clothes (for San Francisco’s microclimates): we rode a San Francisco Cable Car; saw the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge from the San Francisco Ferry Building; enjoyed views of the Golden Gate Bridge (the pride of the city) and the fleet of boats at Fisherman’s Wharf; explored the grounds around the Palace of Fine Arts; drove down Lombard Street – the World’s Crookedest; and, finally ended our day eating my son’s favorite food, french fries, at one of our favorite diners.

We are moving soon, but one thing is certain… We will be leaving our Hearts in San Francisco!

Pink isn’t a colour that I would ordinarily gravitate to. I wouldn’t consider myself particularly ‘girly’; The pink pieces I have stumbled across for Edie have been too full on for me … Hot Pink’s caked in Glitter, Frill’s, Garish Character’s. I just can’t bring myself to do it.

From time to time we’ll find some pieces in pink, that don’t bring this Mumma out in hives; And we embrace them.

With Valentine’s just around the corner, we put our best feet forward in our Anna Pops shoes and took to Cambridge to share the love.

Taking inspiration from some of the grey days you might be experiencing as well, my little man is fitted from chin to Chelsea boot in grey! A clean monochromatic outfit with his button down and grey denims. I’ve added a pop of colour with a beanie in Pantone’s colour of the year, Marsala, to keep everything fresh and fun. Finished with his black Chelsea boots, Carter’s ready to follow his beloved bunny friends out and down the rabbit hole!
