It has always been a dream of mine to visit Japan, especially during cherry blossom season. Since a big vacation isn’t in my budget plans for a while, I was excited to hear that one of my favorite atrists, Ayumi Horie, would be visiting Japan for sakura season. I’ve long admired Ayumi’s pottery, but I also love the gorgeous photographs she takes and shares on her Instagram feed. So when she offered to take photos during her trip and share them here with us, I jumped at the chance for a little virtual morning vacation. So all this week, Ayumi will be sharing photos from Japan and letting us peek inside some of the amazing moments she captured, from lush, blooming cherry trees to deer sleeping at night under a pink sky. Thanks to Ayumi for sharing her trip with us this week and a BIG congrats on her engagement during the trip! xo, grace
