This picture was the inspiration behind Bunnylou. “Bunny” and “Baby Lou” were terms of endearment our children were called when they were wee little ones. I remember how Baby Lou detested her bob cut with bangs because it interfered with her vision when she played tiny tot soccer, and how Bunny Boy was full of boundless energy, jumping, running, and hopping everywhere and exhaustedly collapsing into a deep slumber with his stuffed toy bunny by his bedside.[if gte vml 1]><v:shapetype id="_x0000_t75" coordsize="21600,21600" o:spt="75" o:preferrelative="t" path="m@4@5l@4@11@9@11@9@5xe" filled="f" stroked="f"> <v:stroke joinstyle="miter"></v:stroke> <v:formulas> <v:f eqn="if lineDrawn pixelLineWidth 0"></v:f> <v:f eqn="sum @0 1 0"></v:f> <v:f eqn="sum 0 0 @1"></v:f> <v:f eqn="prod @2 1 2"></v:f> <v:f eqn="prod @3 21600 pixelWidth"></v:f> <v:f eqn="prod @3 21600 pixelHeight"></v:f> <v:f eqn="sum @0 0 1"></v:f> <v:f eqn="prod @6 1 2"></v:f> <v:f eqn="prod @7 21600 pixelWidth"></v:f> <v:f eqn="sum @8 21600 0"></v:f> <v:f eqn="prod @7 21600 pixelHeight"></v:f> <v:f eqn="sum @10 21600 0"></v:f> </v:formulas> <v:path o:extrusionok="f" gradientshapeok="t" o:connecttype="rect"></v:path> <o:lock v:ext="edit" aspectratio="t"></o:lock> </v:shapetype><v:shape id="Picture_x0020_1" o:spid="_x0000_i1027" type="#_x0000_t75" alt="Description:" style='width:14pt;height:14pt;visibility:visible;mso-wrap-style:square'> <v:imagedata src="file://localhost/Users/wilsonphotos/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/msoclip/0/clip_image001.png" o:title="//"></v:imagedata> </v:shape><![endif][if !vml][endif] This website is dedicated to them and to all children around the world – energetic, playful, sweet, kind, adorable, young and old, cute (with bangs or no bangs), and especially to the ones who lost their toys, homes, and even friends and families due to conflicts and disasters. I hope the stories, pictures, and lessons presented here will bring a glimmer of hope, a spark of joy, some inspiration, and a little peaceful feeling from the Land of Lilac Mae.

It took me more than 15 years to get here, and I’m hopping on new ground. And yes, the grass looks definitely greener.[if gte vml 1]><v:shape id="Picture_x0020_3" o:spid="_x0000_i1025" type="#_x0000_t75" alt="Description:" style='width:14pt;height:14pt;visibility:visible;mso-wrap-style:square'> <v:imagedata src="file://localhost/Users/wilsonphotos/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/msoclip/0/clip_image005.png" o:title="//"></v:imagedata> </v:shape><![endif][if !vml][endif]
