Hello, it's been awhile. Life is good. Winter has almost disappeared, with the beginnings of Spring starting to show. Matthew and I spent last weekend exploring Detroit and finding new places to call our own. We visited the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory on Bell Isle for a tour of flora and fauna, all beautifully maintained in a greenhouse & botanical garden built in 1904. Besides a few days of exploration in the past few months, I have been focusing on work and research development. My lab and I recently contributed an article for Ted Weekend on Huffington Post (here). Despite my busy schedule, the summer should see a return of vintage dresses, sandals, and wicker baskets-some of which will be shared with you.
