Naturally, this means I think I know everything there is to know on the subject and feel the need to share all of my newly discovered wisdom on the topic.
Unfortunately, all I can do is share our experiences. Let’s start with preparation. To be honest, we didn’t do a lot of it, but I think that was for the better. We scheduled a couple of Airbnbs throughout the trip, scheduled the basic outline of our days, but didn’t plan much in the way of activities or meals. Here’s what we DID prepare: (more…)
Hi, friends! It’s been a while since Thursday Tidbits showed their face. It’s high time for some important things and some completely not important things.
Wes Anderson designed a cafe and it’s just about the most delightful thing ever. So many pastels.
I saw Mad Max a week or so ago and, since then, I’ve been telling everyone to see it. I think action movies are usually entertaining but ultimately forgettable. Fury Road finally combined explosions with incredible female characters and I’m really excited about it. Here’s a review on the Roger Ebert site that I think does it justice.
Day one of the cross-country road trip brought us to Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the United States. It’s a collapsed volcano that filled with snow and rainwater until the basin was full of clear, fresh, beautiful water. This made for some completely beautiful photo ops. (more…)
Sarah and I have driven between Portland and Eugene a couple of times in the past week. While the state is beautiful regardless of where you drive, we were looking for a change of pace. So we headed out to the coast. (more…)
This weekend I saw three beautiful places, two incredible waterfalls, and fell deeply, deeply in love with Seattle in a matter of a couple of hours. I don’t watch Twin Peaks, but if I did, I would be jazzed about staying in the town where it’s filmed (we ate cherry pie at the diner and I think that’s an important element or something). We built fires and hiked and explored for days. (more…)
Like when you’re so wrapped up in a story that the pages are turning themselves and finally you’re staring at the few final lingering sentences, then space. Space to think and imagine, and space to finally have space.
It’s already May, and I’m feeling so nostalgic for this year already. It’s been so good, and some of it so messy, and some of it so outrageously surprising. Things have worked out when they shouldn’t have and people have come through in the best ways.
I spent an hour this week down the rabbit hole of Minimalism School posts from Heroine Training. Xandra is a delight and I’m always so inspired by her posts and videos. If you’re interested in lightening your load and keeping your life magical and clear of clutter, she’s your lady.
