A Welcome Note Recently, for my daughter’s “About Me” school collage, the teacher asked that she come to class with a few family photos. To my parental horror, we didn’t have any.

This was all rather surprising because I tend to gravitate toward the tactile. I write in a handheld calendar and prefer to have a printed copy of my boarding pass.

Pets on the Furniture THE FELINE Marie, a six-month-old Maine Coon cat, surveys her kingdom from atop her posh perch. THE FURNITURE Featuring easy-to-clean polyester velvet upholstery and sculpted wooden legs, this sophisticated chaise lounge ($799; walmart.com) comes in three colors (including Parisian Pink, shown) and pairs well with cat motif wallpaper (Sanderson’s “Omega Cats”; stylelibrary.com), 20th-century toleware trays, a rustic floor lamp (“Sloan” lamp, $170; ballarddesigns.com), and an antique Turkish runner. Don’t forget the crocheted cat toys ($17; mungoandmaud.com). Regal Pet Renderings After a museum-filled trip to Europe, George Smith got to thinking: Don’t our pets deserve similarly refined, Renaissance-style portraits? Enter Crown & Paw, which allows you to submit a pet’s photo, select your desired aristocratic garb (regalia! tiaras!), and the site’s digital designers will give Fido the royal treatment. Poster from $30, or Wrapped…

all hannah’s parents should worry about is hannah

When Hannah’s bloodwork revealed cancer, her family was devastated. But because of our donors, her mom and dad can focus on being parents while she looks forward to her visits with the music therapist at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Families like Hannah’s will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because we believe all they should worry about is helping their child live. Experience Hannah’s story at stjude.org/hannah “We’re blessed to be here because St. Jude makes it so we really can just focus on her.”–Chandra, Hannah’s mom…
