Traveler Lucy, a self-proclaimed Taalumaniac, lived in Malaysia for a few years when she was a young child.
Now an adult, she returned to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to find her childhood home.
Armed with a handful of memories and unwavering determination, she set out on her quest.
To start her search, Lucy found a towering reference point
and got a great vantage point on so many levels.
(Can you see your house from up there?)
Once she saw the Ma-lay of the land, she knew exactly what steps to take!
The first tusk: Find the mini elephant sculptures.
Next, go with the flow beside the street art.
Then, follow the root through the woods (to grandma’s house we go).
Pretty soon, Lucy recognized a street sign she would go past every day as a child…
and taking a trip down memory lane, she finally found it!
To help capture memories of her childhood hometown, Lucy hit the markets and searched for the infi-knit-ely perfect fabric.
And what she found tote-ally goes the extra yard!
“This fabric's bright colors and motif remind me of our family trips to Malaysian Borneo and their traditional clothes.” - Lucy Cronan
Here’s to remembering where you came from and looking forward to where you're going… & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

I recently traveled to Alaska and have some questions for you.
So if you don’t mind Bering with me, Alaska a few of them…
Did Juneau that the top 10 tallest mountains in the United States are all located in Alaska?
Wikipedia (ahem, my favorite source) defines “pay it forward” as “an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying the kindness to others instead of to the original benefactor.”
In other words, when someone does something nice for you, you do something nice for someone else, sparking an awesome chain reaction of kindness :)
