I wanted to pass along some of things that I think are worth exploring...
Into Thin Air, This is a book by Jon Krakauer about climbing Everest and the devestaion that occurred during his climbing experience back in 1996. The moving Everest is loosely based on his book, although he would disagree that the movie did not accurately portray the event. Dan and I recent saw the movie, and those who know me, know I love a good adventure film. The story facisntes me. I strongly recommend reading Into Thin Air. Actually, I recommend anything by Krakauer, but inparticalur check out this unbelievable story about tragedy and survival.
Check out this super cute, rustic feeling home store. This "General Store" even sells cute cleaning items, like scrubbing brushes and dust pans-- you would almost want to display them... as backwards as that feels!
I have really enjoyed discovery the blog, Cup of Jo. the creator, Joanna Goddard is a mom of two boys living in Brooklyn, and her blog covers everything forms kid stuff, style, design, and food. I get lost reading this blog, I feel like it relates to my life almost entirely-- accept that I am extremely jealous that she gets to live in NYC. This article about deciding to have a third child, or not, was especially interesting to me. A warning: Do not read this before bed, I always end up going to bed two hours later than planned because I lose track of time :)
My good friend Alice just took a weekend trip to Marfa, Texas. For those of you who do not know Marfa (which is most people) it is an out of the way artist haven in the middle of nowhere Texas. It is truly a facisnating place, read about it here. I am obsessed with Gray Malin's Prada Marfa series, but the prints are definitely pricy. Alice saved the day! She took fantastic pictures of exactly what I wanted! I think the below photo ( by Alice) sums up Texas perfectly, I can not wait to frame it and proudly display it!
