It has been a long, hot week here in Richmond and I’m heading into another weekend with no obligations. I took my second creative workshop of the year last night, basic screenprinting, and I’m all kinds of hyped up over learning something new and so fun.
Dan and I submitted our 60-day intent to vacate, so now we’re in that weird and stressful place where it’s too early to actually sign a new lease somewhere, but the clock will be ticking down faster than we know. We’re not thrilled with what we see online yet, so I’m starting to get nervous about our next home, future neighborhood, and what our lives might be like not living directly in the middle of the city. Fingers crossed!
Have a fun weekend everyone! And enjoy the reads below:
- On Monday I shared about our time in my best friend’s home city, Wageningen, the Netherlands.
- Wednesday’s post was all about our visit to Wageningen’s local working windmill, De Vlijt.
- Stranger Things This new Netflix original show caught Dan’s attention last Sunday afternoon and we ended up watching all eight episodes while we did laundry and I edited photos. Whoops! But I’m not sorry…it was good (even though I usually hate suspense) and I’m looking forward to a second season.
- Kelly of Wandering Blonde stayed at a really unique hotel in Mexico and now I want to go!
- As if I didn’t want to go to Peru enough already, Casey of Land of Marvels’ post on how she fell in love with Peru made it shoot to the top my bucket list.
- Catherine of A Short Blonde’s baby boy is due any moment! I love her maternity photos in San Francisco and can relate so much to all of the feelings she used to have.
On the Internets
- My friend Jeff’s most recent piece on becoming a minimalist (and what that even means anyway) definitely deserves a read.
- David Chang, owner and lead chef of Momofuku, has a theory about the “strange loop” of creating culinary masterpieces.
- Have you ever seen a friend’s post on Facebook who has the opposite political views and wondered why they believe what they do with such conviction? The Wall Street Journal puts two opposing news feeds next to each other, and the difference is incredibl(y disturbing).
- 100 women posed nude at the RNC as part of a photography project called “Everything She Says Means Everything” by Spencer Tunic. WARNING: NUDITY (NSFW).
