After enduring this week’s (hopefully) last blast of winter’s wrath, I think another trip to the tropics is in order. The Como Conservatory, a mere ten minute drive from our house, gives Dakota and I the ability to feel humidity levels far above the dry desert tundra that is our present residence and the backdrop to pretend we’re frolicking around in Central or South America. I never got around to posting these pics from our first visit there this winter (pre-2014!), proving that pregnancy has definitely taken it’s tole on my blogging ambition. Hopefully, with Mieka‘s quickly approaching due date, I will find the time to show you all of the “cool, pregnancy induced” nesting projects I’ve been up to lately! Until then, think spring!
