Pescadero + Bernoulli + Happy Links

After a week of dreaming of, reminiscing about and plotting our next trip to the U.S. Northern Rockies, I thought I'd better throw in a nice sunset-over-the-Pacific photo for today's post.It's Friday (yippee!), so enjoy this little weekly wrap-up and have a great weekend!

Happy Links:

  • Sacramento chef Adam Pechal is making the grade on ABC's The Taste. Any of my Sacramento friends watching? We all know reality TV isn't really real, but it's sure fun watching him do what he does best on a national show.
  • When Apartment Therapy featured this adaptable house in Washington I did a double take. Can you imagine living in a place like that? Talk about options!
  • Have you checked out these photos of the Flower Carpet Festival in Brussels? AMAZING. Anyone seen it in person?

  • We made it official: Glacier National Park is on the books for this year. Plus, our favorite Grand Teton cabin rentals (from our 2009 road trip) finally got the recognition they deserve.
  • I found some old footage from the aforementioned trip and made a little video. I keep watching it and smiling. Memories are amazing little treasures, aren't they?

Happy Friday, all!

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:

  • 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!

Yosemite + Muir + Happy Links

Well, hello there! Things have been a bit quiet around here this week thanks to a whole host of offline business, but I wanted to be sure to introduce a new and improved version of the "A Snap + A Quote" series.I'm always stumbling across people, places and things that make me smile, so I'm adding them to the mix! Ready? Here it goes:

Happy Links:

  • This great post from the No More Dirty Looks gals soliciting a clean cosmetics resource list from everyone on the internet.
  • C'est Christine's lovely postcard post from the Brooklyn Bridge, which is satisfying my inner bridge nerd.
  • A wonderful collection of bear photos over on My Modern Met (and pretty much every collection of photos on My Modern Met).
  • Bloglovin' as my new blog reader. So much better than what I was using before.
  • This incredible cabin renovation over on Smitten Studio, which is really making me want a fixer cabin. Stat!

Happy Friday, all. I hope you have a lovely weekend!
