The weekend is upon us. Today I’m coming to you live from good ‘ole Indiana, where I grew up. I’m sitting in my childhood bedroom, doing my best to overcome debilitating jet lag, and eagerly awaiting a special breakfast of my mom’s famous pancakes (ok, they’re not famous, they’re Bisquick, but they’re just better when served by your mom on the same plates that have been in the cupboard for thirty years, with a side of orange juice in my favorite pink plastic cup, circa 1989).

Before we head down that long rabbit hole of nostalgia, where I’m bound to be wallowing for the next few days, I bring to you the very best that the Internet has to offer. These good reads kept me busy for a nice chunk of my hefty airport layover, and I hope they will serve you equally well the next time you find yourself in Newark, New Jersey.


 

It’s June, and summer is upon us. Which means, of course, summery cocktails that taste best on a deck at 9pm when it’s still light out. Here are a few that I’ll be sampling out back this weekend:

In other edible news, getting the most out of the all-you-can-eat buffet.

What Everest climbers eat up there for weeks and/or months. You know, once their digestive systems have essentially shut down to allow them to survive.

And amen to overrated food trends.

I love a good, curated, photo project. Check out:

I go through seasons of being fascinated with my own personal development, living mindfully, eating close to the earth, and writing reflectively. And then, usually around the appearance of beautiful warm days and lots of beers on patios, it all goes to hell. In anticipation:

In case you missed it on the blog, we’re planning our Balkan Road Trip for late summer, thinking about life after London, and we finally made it down to Brighton.

Did you hear we were cast in a global ad campaign? That was crazy.

Before I sign off for the weekend, wanted to raise a glass to one of our favorite traveling couples who have been an inspiration to us for years and and who recently celebrated seven years of nomadism. They have figured out how create a life of professional and personal fulfillment, all from a rotating selection of cities, villages and beaches. Congrats!

      Thanks Kristen! I appreciated your recent post on your dad and my family is going through something similar, which makes trips home much more weighty than normal!
