Friday Links: Rue & music

by Hannah

Have you seen Rue? This lovely online magazine overflows with style and visual amazingness (oh yes that’s a word in my world). The design. The writing. The photography. The layout (full screen. no paper wasted because it’s an online mag. and you like what you see? click on it.)

Go. Grab a mug of your favorite warm beverage. Immerse yourself. Be inspired.

You’re welcome.
{and happy Friday}

I also wanted to share with some music that has been soothing my soul this week.
Ingrid Michaelson
A Fine Frenzy
Mumford & Sons
The Pandora stations generated by these artists are just awesome. They are the soundtrack of my life right now.

p.s.- it’s time for 52 on Fridays again, and this week is warmth.

Hopefully by next week I can link you to my new website- I got the design part done and then during the installation everything went wacky and my whole site has been down for a few days, which is driving a me a little crazy. I’m excited to unveil the new look- hopefully it won’t be too much longer!

Some Sunday Links

by Hannah

I know my “links” posts haven’t been totally regular, but I have a bunch of things from around the web that I wanted to share this weekend. I guess it was just a good week in cyberspace :)

In food:
Chocolate Peanut spread
from Smitten Kitchen {big nutella fan here, so I’m all over this idea}
and these yummy looking Peanut Snack bars from The Little Red House
lovely food photography and recipes on Honey and Jam

In photography:
a discussion about film
on Shutter Sisters
and speaking of film- Jonathan Canlas talked on Formspring about the awesome benefits of the new Kodak Portra 400 {which I can’t wait to try}
a gorgeous Maui wedding shot by Jose Villa, on Style Me Pretty– Part I and Part II {and just to tie it all together, Jose shoots film too, and happens to be one of my all-time favorite photographers}

In design:
this post on office style, on The Pretty Blog, makes me want to redesign my home office space
and I have been loving all the inspiration to be found on Pinterest, and it is keeping me from cluttering my bookmarks folder, which I like

In life:
my friend Angie talked about stepping back from the time-suck that is the Internet
and Deb Schwedhelm shared why you shouldn’t check your email first thing in the morning {original article by Sid Savara}
on The Creative Mama, Tiffany Larson shared her green goals for the year

And a photo of Seth from a few days ago- it makes my heart so happy that he enjoys art already…

Today I’m dreaming of…

by Hannah

A simpler existence.
One without complicated grown-up problems that I feel like I just can’t solve.

I’m dreaming of walking on the beach with my family, of taking time to shoot just for me, of reading books again, of just slowing down and focusing on what is most important to me, and letting everything negative just melt away, at least for a while.

I’ve been daydreaming lately about the perfect outdoor space. I picture a long wooden table to fill with friends and family, and strings of lights hanging. Mixmatched vintage chairs. A hammock, a play area for Seth, and a little herb garden. I love our little yard- and am so thankful to finally have a yard- but I do look forward to one that’s big enough to do a little bit more in.

I’m inspired by images like this:

via Little Lovely

via Dress Design Decor
