You will be missed.

Yesterday, the world lost another beautiful soul when artist and author Maurice Sendak passed away at the age of 83. Sendak wrote and illustrated many different children’s books including the very popular Where the Wild Things Are which is undoubtedly my favorite book of all time. I vividly remembering reading it as a child and my love of this book hasn’t diminished at all over the years. I cannot wait to read those famous lines to our baby in the beautiful nursery that we are creating…

And he sailed off through night and day

and in and out of weeks

and almost over a year

to where the wild things are.

Mr. Sendak, you will be greatly missed but your words and images will live on forever in our lives and in the minds and imagination of our children.
