The Wine Country

otm-sonoma

Known around the world for its incredible wine, Sonoma County here in California is a sommelier’s dream. The rich soil, the dry sands, and the warm days make the perfect grape-raising valley. Whether you’re here to visit and take a sip or a sample, or if you’re just dreaming of a vacation to a vinyard that stomps their own grapes and bottles on-property, this map will give you that connection you’re yearning for. It’s the perfect decoration for your wine cellar or your living room. We know we love wine country. We hope to see you there soon!

The Cat Came Back

otm-stanford

Revisiting our favorite curious kitty, we find him in Stanford watching a ballgame. Though most of our work has deeper meanings, this one is just for fun. Sometimes you have to loosen up and let the kitty whack a football straight through the uprights, right?

But let’s try for a little deeper meaning, anyway. Maybe the message really is just to loosen up and have some fun these days. We spend so long working toward our goals and, while admirable, sometimes we just need to take a step back and enjoy what’s out there.

Roses in New York

otm-rosesandbutterflies

All a-bloom with butterflies to boot, this map of New York City focuses on Ward 24. Rife with colorful characters and romantic melodies, this little butterfly has found his happy place upon a white rose. White roses symbolize simplicity, purity, and new beginnings. As this butterfly flutters on his way, he’s feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new day.

Follow in this butterfly’s path. Find your happy place and take a breather there. Sometimes you just need to recharge (and maybe get a little snack while you’re at it). Self-care is being self-aware!
