Places to go...

Places to go...
Photographs by: Karen Holmes

Details of a Day...

A "Traveling Baby Shower" was the inspiration for these books from a dear long-time family friend. Due to distance, this grand baby girl's birth became an inpetus to create an original type of shower celebration. From all over the country, the sweet gifts have flowed in on the the wings of love and joy and kindness, welcoming this precious new life into a world that is rich with traveling possibilities.

Oh the places she will most certainly go... and love will most certainly follow her all her days...

Thank yous abound...

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
