This weekend we’re headed for our first adventure of summer, and it’s going to be HOT.  We’re taking an RV to Zion with our friends and hiking the national park.  It’s going to be 93 degrees.  Omg.  Then we’re going to do one night in Vegas.  It’s going to be 113 degrees there.  OMG.  In other words, my comfort zone will be severely tested and I’ll be melting, but also making some fun and sweaty memories.  Stay cool this weekend, and make sure to spend lots of time away from your devices, after checking out these links of course!

One Day in Los Angeles

This is maybe the hardest post I’ve ever had to put together.  It simply isn’t possible to fit all my favorite places in my very loved city of LA in one day- it’s too close to my heart!  The biggest challenge is that LA is enormous and if this were to really be about my top favorite spots only, there would be too much time lost traveling between points since they’re so spread apart.  So we’re focusing on an itinerary that’s both geographically conscious and satisfies the first time visitor who wants to feel like they experienced a little bit of everything LA has to offer.  In partnership with Uber, here’s what to do with only one day in LA- but please, if you can, try to get more than one day here.  You’ll love it, I promise.

Living Room Update: Casual Seating

Adding seating to our living room has been a little tricky.  Seeing that I didn’t want to compromise the minimal feeling of the space, the ideal solution seemed to be not adding more seating at all, but we live here.  People come over, and even just two extra seats would make things a lot more comfortable and functional.  The other criteria I had for additional seating was for it to be visually light and airy, not block the light coming through that big window, and be easy to rearrange (think viewing parties with all seats in front of and facing the TV.  Very important life goal.)

DIY Hanging Frames

Inspired by some frames I saw in Copenhagen and using photos I took there, this is yet another time I’m going to be talking about Copenhagen, but with a DIY!  I saw hanging frames like these at a shop that were much larger and there was no way they would fit in my suitcase, as much as I wanted to take them home, and I hadn’t stopped thinking about them since.  Combined with the million photos I took while I was there, it felt like a really good idea to print some out and make some frames of my own, and I’ve partnered with my friends at Canon to show you how.

Dang this weekend came quick!  Extra excited for this weekend’s plans because they’re my favorite of all: dog-sitting and doing dog-friendly things in LA.  It’s our ticket to going to this one dog park that usually has swarms of dogs, where I’ve missed going there and playing with all of them and pretending like I’m a dog-owner who belongs there.  It’s kind of a dream.  One of these days we’ll get our own fur baby!!   Read More
