If you’re in the US, you might be gearing up for a long weekend ~ if so, I hope you’ll be doing something fun. Around here, we’re just hoping the weather stays beautiful so we can get outside for some biking or hiking. Nothing too crazy, just some peaceful good times.
Happy Thursday! Enjoy this week’s picks from around the web!
A personal fave pinner to follow is the ever-creative (and San Fran local) Chronicle Books.
The article is geared toward home-based entrepreneurs, who might see clients during the day or have last-minute lunches. However, some of the advice applies to those like me (and some of you!) who currently write, edit, design, program, etc. for a living and could feasibly not even leave bed all day. Ahem.
I definitely believe in a look good, feel good philosophy and make sure to dress for work every day, even if I don’t even need to leave the house. Being dressed, blow-dried, and with (very) simple makeup, I feel professional and sharp ~ which I believe translates in my ultimate ability to work well throughout the day.
I have a deep and abiding love of Mexican designs, colors, and homes like this. I love all of it, but particularly this colorful, rustic kitchen!
By analyzing Adele’s “Someone Like You,” this article presents a fascinating analysis of what makes a song give you the chills and make you cry. Media clips and song samples included. So interesting!

Is Pride and Prejudice (with or without zombies) the best love story ever? Perhaps. Yes, indeed, it just might be.
Excellent tips here for anyone who writes ~ or who wants to write ~ love stories.
I love the idea of making fruit leather! I wonder what kale/chard/celery/cucumber/apple leather would taste like?
I can’t wait for summertime and barbeques and fairy jars.
Remember: birds eat even when it’s snowing and raining outside! :-)
That’s all for now! Exclamation marks galore! Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
