this is kera, or running mommy. she’s my friend & she’s very cool.

we met here in dubai, but she actually lives in abu dhabi {the capitol of the UAE, an hour away} so this week I visited her and got to see her fantastic apartment with beautiful ocean views.

she’s a mother of two boys, a design guru, a model, a runner, and also writes a weekly design blog for pregnancy & newborn magazine. this week she featured Olivia’s nursery & an interview with me. So hop on over for a few tips & new ideas from yours truly.

livi & i had a fun day in abu dhabi with kera, owen, and asher.

we went to a cultural village where we saw craftsmen of all sorts

{kera was a natural at making ruffled pottery}

saw some rugs being made,

and some finished rugs that I wanted to take home with me {as usual…what’s with me and rugs?} but seriously aren’t these amazing?

and we picked up some orchids & succulents at the plant souk. abu dhabi is gorgeous & we had so much fun with kera. so thanks for hosting us running mommy, what a treat.
