Tall Trees + Thoreau + Happy Links

attachment-5188fba6e4b0921527f9812d

Well, we've made it to Friday and I'm back with a snap, a quote and a handful of happy links for you. I'm also adding links to all of my posts for the week... you know... just in case you missed anything. ;)

{"I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees." // Henry David Thoreau}

Happy Links:

  • Can we just talk about the visually stunning recipes over on The Forest Feast for a moment? So lovely.
  • This post by Megan of The Fresh Exchange about her experience at Alt Summit is so incredibly honest. After seeing all of the "hustle, hustle, primp, wear polka dots, sell, sell, sell" recaps about Alt, I had questioned whether or not I'd ever go. This is a great reminder that not every blog is the same and we don't all have the same goals.
  • I've been following Patti Murphy's Project 365 and am loving her "things to think, believe and do."
  • This video. So hilarious. So ridiculous. So true. {Warning: this is the explicit version. Bust out those headphones if you're living the cubical/coffee shop/co-working life today.}
  • It's been tough for me to stop admiring the work of Nicole Franzen after finding her work in the latest edition of Wayfare Magazine. Just look at her photos of the English Countryside.... {sigh}....

Wrap it Up:

If you missed any posts from this week, just follow the links!

  • Catch my latest GoPro video edit + dirt bike shenanigans + black lab cuteness right here.
  • Read a review of the new Wayfare Magazine here. {spoiler alert: it's incredible}.
  • Remember summer with me in a fun guest post I put together for my friends over at the California State Parks Foundation over here.

Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend, all!

A Mud-Luscious, Puddle-Wonderful Weekend

In the poem "in Just" by E. E. Cummings, the world is described as both "mud-luscious" and "puddle-wonderful" as spring arrives. I've always loved the way those adjectives roll off the tongue.While we're definitely experiencing the beginning of winter here in Northern California, this past weekend was as bright and shiny as they come (aside from a bit of morning fog). I'd go so far as to call the last few days spring-like. Add a healthy dose of mud and a puddle or two and you've got yourself a good time.

The hubs and I took the dogs out to the family ranch for some much-needed exercise. I won't lie: it was also a good excuse to get me on the back of the dirt bike (which never, ever happens).

It was absolutely perfect. Days like this past Saturday make me so grateful for the little life we've created.

Here's a smattering of goodness in the form of a video:

Now, I know it's the beginning of a new week (which can always be a downer), but I'm aiming to turn that around. What has you feeling a bit of post-weekend gratitude? Link up in the comment section if you'd like to share.
