One of the things I love most about living in Europe is that the children’s clothing is so fantastic. When my girlfriend, Anya, introduced me to Pomp de Lux a couple years ago, I was immediately smitten. Not only are the clothes completely adorable, Pomp de Lux can be ordered from home, which for me as a mom of three means that I can shop in my pj’s after the kids have gone to bed without them getting bored or begging to go to the toy store instead. Instant Luxury! The fact that the prices are reasonable and my kids’ sizes always available is just icing on the cake.
I was a little worried about placing an order online the first time because I wasn’t sure how the sizing would work. Oftentimes in the US, sizing from one item to the next can vary so much with many of our brands, but I have never had any problems with Pomp de Lux. Everything seems to fit perfectly every time and my kids absolutely love each piece they own. The cottons are always super soft and the styles are just too cute for words!

With only ten weeks left until we begin our six month stay in the US, I have been thinking a lot about many of our family and friends who we have not seen these past four years. Some we have not seen because money just did not allow, but we were quite surprised by how many of our friends and family preferred not to fly. Growing up with my Dad being a pilot made me a natural born flyer but when we moved overseas, we quickly realized that not everyone likes to fly on an airplane, whether due to fear or simply the distaste for being confined for hours in the air.
That made me wonder what other options might be available for travelers who still long to see new destinations but prefer to be a little closer to the ground. While trains and rental cars are great options, I also found the idea of traveling by bus quite intriguing. Many of my friends here in Europe take buses when they travel and there are bus companies, such as iDBUS, that offer really great travel itineraries between major cities. I think it would be an absolute blast to hop on a bus in Paris in the evening and arrive in London by the morning. The tickets are very affordable and these buses are not the same as those of yesteryears. Bus companies, such as iDBUS provide free WIFI, Electrical Outlets for every seat, and TV’s for entertainment, so you, and your kids if you are traveling as a family, will have plenty of options to keep you busy. Some of my more eco conscious friends swear that it is yet another way of decreasing their carbon footprint as well.
I’m curious. Have any of you traveled by bus? Is it an option that you would consider if you haven’t tried it before?

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? If there was any doubt that Spring had arrived here in Copenhagen, then this weekend definitely made it very clear. The weather was nothing short of glorious with pale, clear blue skies and warm sunshine that makes the face glow with happiness. The flowers are suddenly blooming and I feel the magic of Spring in every inch of my soul… as though my heart can suddenly dream again and the possibilities for today are endless.
Does Spring have that affect on you, too?
I roamed about our neighborhood a bit with the camera, trying to catch some of the first Spring flowers in Copenhagen because I have a little project that I am working on. I’ve been saying for quite some time that I want more of our personal work on the walls and now I suddenly have the motivation I need to get it done, though I will admit that when the sun is shining so brilliantly and the weather is so perfect… it is so tempting to just run outside and do absolutely nothing!
Would any of you like to display any of these floral photos on your walls? I was thinking they would look so nice paired with a modern frame and wide white matting.
