1. My sister introduced me to the lovely Kinfolk magazine. It’s magical. I could browse through their archives for hours. The photos are soft and dreamy, the writing conversational and original. For instance, this interview with photographers who shoot in analog elevated film use to the level of poetry.
Do yourself a favor and browse the online articles this weekend. One quick warning: only a limited number of articles are available for free. I already hit my limit for the month, but can’t wait to see what is in store in the next issue.
2. I am always excited by stories of women who are able to succeed at creative, unique careers. Rue Magazine’s interview with Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam is fun and inspiring.
3. Joy the Baker shares a Whipped Ricotta recipe. Um, yes, please. I love recipes that can be used for easy appetizers.
4. Blogger Discovery of the Week: I love this idea of sharing the past month’s Instagrams and future month’s goals. Look out, readers! Also, Selective Potential is from Michigan. So obviously I think her blog is fabulous. Looking forward to reading more from her.
5. Lifehacker provides advice for making friends after college. And quotes me!;-) Although their link to my Twitter handle is outdated . . . *le sigh*.
6. It’s definitely a Michigan-themed day. This article on tart cherries shares with the world a secret that Michiganonians have long known: that Michigan tart cherries really are the best.
7. I reached Inbox Zero yesterday, inspired by Merlin Mann’s article, my husband’s (much more effective) email system, and my own terror at the sight of my inbox. Here’s to a more productive life.
8. Remember when we talked about actions to take that would inspire greater creativity in your life? Michael Hyatt’s journaling template will help!
9. For my D.C. friends who are furloughed, here is a great place to visit in our corner of the city. It’s free and beautiful and inspiring.
