how’s your tuesday? i’m traveling with liz on a job in the keys. we’ve been friends for decades and work together whenever we can. it means road trips and good food, hard work and inappropriate laughs. in our room in the keys, the decor is tropical. botanical prints of various palm trees inspired me to pinterest search ‘botanical vintage’ and of course got lost in a world of renderings and illustrations.
