Links I’ve been hoarding for you

Links I’ve been hoarding for you

Every now and again when I find a link I want to share with you all I open up a new browser window and start collecting tabs.

And every now and again I completely forget that I’ve been collecting tabs and wind up with eight different windows and 112 links I’ve been hoarding since March.

Thus, today’s list of things you might be vaguely interested in.

Blog Things

If you’ve been looking for a few new things to read, here’s a list of 10+ blogs you might like from Erin at Design for Mankind.

I’m just going to go ahead and add Green Chair Stories to the list because Rachel is incredible and will quickly come to feel like your BFF. You should probably also follow her on Instagram and sign up for her newsletter (scroll down to the footer, on the left).

Good Advice Things

Two wise and timely posts from Modern Mrs. Darcy: Sometimes you have to decide you have what it takes and This is why assumptions are dangerous.

I just finished watching all nine seasons of The Office and I miss seeing the gang everyday so I might be a little bit biased on this one… but if you also love Pam and Jim, I think you might love this post on choosing contentment.

For the writers in the crowd: How Anne Lamott Helped This Woman Beat Writer’s Block

This guy for sure doesn’t have writer’s block. I loved Wells Tower’s article on The Hawaii Cure.

Heartwarming Things

We just held a quadruple wedding at the Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines. It’s as much of a tearjerker as you’d imagine four simultaneous weddings would be.

If I didn’t already want to adopt all the kids, I would after watching this interview with Lisa Harper.

Book Things

I ordered three books this week because apparently that’s what I do now. The Bright Hour by Nina Riggs, which looks beautiful and hilarious and gut-wrenching; Falling Free by Shannan Martin, which looks like the kind of book that will turn my life upside down; and Of Mess and Moxie by Jen Hatmaker, because Jen Hatmaker.

Interesting Things

Just humor me and watch this whole video about the Japanese puffer fish. It will renew your faith in love.

Fair Warning: If you are a) a Gilmore Girls fan and b) a competitive person, you will willingly surrender hours of your life to Gilmore Girls Trivia Paris Geller Would Approve Of. My current high score is 36.

Starbucks’ matcha lemonade is one of the nicer ways to cool down when it’s insanely hot out and you’ve already had three glasses of iced coffee. Also on that list: these fruit and tea pops from Outshine. The lemon and black tea one is so good.

I just discovered the wonder that is the Google Calendar app. If you are the kind of person who is delighted by simple, beautiful changes to normal things, you might spend all of your time working these keywords into your calendar appointments. Related: Google Calendar goals. (In the literal meaning of the word “goals,” not the trendy millennial hashtag.)

Ok, your turn. Have you guys found any good things on the internet lately? Also, does anyone know of a good yoga app? I had been using the Yoga Studio one from Gaiam and they just turned that into a monthly subscription… so I’m looking for something a little more free. Any suggestions?

    • SERIOUSLY. But the real question is, as my Android-loving friend, why didn’t you tell me about the wonders of the Google Calendar app? I feel betrayed.

  • First, I sincerely apologize for taking all summer to read your blog. I’ve been in a hole.
    Second, this post reminds me of Austin Kleon’s newsletter. That is about the hugest compliment I can give.
    Third, I feel like I’ve been duped because you said YOU had 182838012 tabs open, and now I have 193808 tabs open. Is this some type of blogger inception I don’t know about?
    Fourth, Google calendar is the bane of my existence. You can’t use a sharpie pen. Why is the app so awesome?
    Fifth, I miss you. Please text me. I’m having all the feelings about the end of summer. Love you!

    • I love all of these things, and you. Text forthcoming :)

      P.s. Google Calendar = beautiful, beautiful, beautiful user experience. I mean, there’s an illustrated moka pot when you schedule a coffee date with someone. What more can you ask for?
