Petra's Nursery

Petra art print c/o Rifle Paper Co






As we've spent the last 8 months figuring out a new city, adjusting to a "non-travel" life, and running a new business, our lives have often felt muddled, with loose ends in just about every direction I look. While the chaos of life has felt completely overwhelming at times, I have been so grateful for this little space of earth, Petra's nursery, where everything feels right in the world. Petra is such a blessing and I want to remember this little corner of our house where so many joyful moments have occurred with our little girl.

There are still unfinished elements (like the hanging light I want to paint gold and the curtains I'd like to add), but I'm not sure if they will ever happen and I didn't want to miss the chance to document this space just because it's not "perfect". If there's one thing I'm learning since becoming a mother, it's that perfection is not something I create, it's a moment that happens when I'm in the right mindset.

Superb! I like this post with all those images as well. My kids are studying in Mosaic Nursery which is situated in Dubai. This is a nursery with very big rooms and maximum 16 kids per class. There are well qualified teachers and they do creative activities. Thanks!
