Links We Love

Housesit | Our Streamlined Life

This week we’re housesitting on a beautiful lake in central New Hampshire! The leaves are juuuuust starting to turn colors and the summer crowds have left, leaving us almost alone with the loons 🙂

Our favorite finds from around the web:

  • How to make your life adventure ready. As we slow our travels, we want to make sure to keep our sense of adventure. “In between the epics, though, are a thousand tiny ways to get into the woods, from impromptu paddles to single-night backpacking trips. [But] it’s not always easy, and there are plenty of reasons to stay on the couch.”
  • On moving up a grade in life.  “I think it’s possible to replicate that sense of progress by asking some simple questions each September: do I feel like I’ve moved up a grade in life? If so, great. But if not, what could I do so I’ll feel differently next September?”
  • Ann Patchett’s Guide for Bookstore Lovers. It’s a road trip map … of bookstores. Go thou and do likewise. (Some of our favorite indie bookstores: Peregrine Book Company, Prescott, Arizona; Sherman’s, Bar Harbor, Maine; Taylor Books, Charleston, WV. What are yours?)

Currently reading: This Is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are (Rebecca), Red Rabbit by Tom Clancy (Ryan)

I'm the oldest of 12 crazy kids and two pretty awesome parents. My love of travel developed during my early years traveling the globe as an Air Force brat. I'm a runner, a writer, and a reader, and I love cooking up good food and cozying up our camper.
