The first book is a picture book that is a really wonderful way to visit another culture with your children. The second book is for young adults. As for the food, I was intimidated to make Sri Lankan food, but the owner’s son who manages the two cafes assured me that this was an easy and delicious recipe that he loved as a child. As for Sri Lanka interior design, it reminds of me of Ralph Lauren when he tries to create romantic images of British Colonial Style. It’s elegant cane furniture crossed with Polynesian style.
I found that I saved all the personalized baby gifts that my three kids received so now I have been giving personalized gifts as well when I have the forethought to plan. I have bought presents from Pocket Baby and Wilder Glassworks and both make great gifts. Simon Pearce comes recommended by Capability:Mom and I like the idea of a piggy bank. Please share your favorite custom baby gifts!
Please welcome Erika Coplon of InsideTrack (private college counselors) who offers these tried and true suggestions when visiting college campuses. I remember doing her suggestions when I looked at colleges and would add a few of my own.
