Good morning, New York!

Here's to stories that need pictures, and pictures that need stories. (If your kiddos – or you – are bored today, give them a story to illustrate, or an illustration to story! One my favorite childhood pastimes.)

A little winter painting. Do you follow @soulemama? Her photos are gorgeous and her winter landscape + Ezra Keats inspired me to get the brushes out this afternoon. Thanks, Amanda!
