{Everyday Inspiration} small town connection...

In a previous post, I took you on a tour of the backroads of my hometown. Well, I recently had the pleasure of connecting via web, with someone else that shares these similar backroad memories with me.  Her name is Courtney and she is the one of the co-founders of Babyccino Kids. Her family is actually part of the reason that our Valley looks so gorgeous in the Spring- with rows & rows of colorful tulips everywhere.

When Courtney had her 2nd baby, klt:works was just getting started and she was living in London (& still is). Her uncle thoughtfully purchased some klt:goodies for Courtney's new baby with the idea of sending something to her that was made from her hometown. He sent some more klt:works items when she had her 3rd child. If my memory is correct, she got one of my first slug plushies & an owl tee. I just got a lovely email from Courtney where the puzzle pieces of our hometown connection started falling into place. 

Do you know about  Babyccino Kids? It's such a fantastic blog with posts from London, Amsterdam, Paris, NYC, & Melbourne- offering up tips & "interesting perspectives about modern family life". I've actually been enjoying it for years- you should go check it out. Courtney posted a really nice klt:works review yesterday too! Yes, it is a small world after all... thanks Courtney! 


  1. Those tulips are gorgeous -- what a rainbow. Off to check out Babyccino Kids :)

  2. What a nice story! :) A small world indeed!
    Are you living in The Netherlands, WA? :)
    Those tuplis are fantastic!

  3. I just love this story. Kind of like 6 degrees of separation! I agree with Daria, it does look like Holland. Or Ottawa in spring. : ) What a terrific post on you on Babyccino! So well deserved!

  4. that is soo cool it is amazing what a small world it is!

  5. Wow! I gasped at those tulips ... what a small world full of some marvellous people. Don't let the good ones go, KLT.

  6. Thank you so much for the lovely comments about Babyccino Kids. And those photos of the tulips make me miss home so much, especially this time of year. You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
    I'm so happy we've been in touch!
