frifaveI’m coming at you early today with a list of links I liked this week, because in about an hour I’ll be SF-bound for work. I actually get to work in the city today. At a wedding. As a server/food photographer with a fantastic caterer [insert all of the excited emojis]. I’ll take a picture and be back Monday :)

Did you have to parallel park on your driver’s test?

On Sunday afternoon I tried a variation of the coffee nap and found it to be quite nice.

Does this make anyone else laugh?

The first paragraph– so relatable, so wise.

Why you should peel your banana like a monkey.

Let’s go to work.

frifaveI spent two computer-free days this week as we have family visiting from home, so I don’t have too many links to share. As soon as I get this post up I’ll be closing the laptop again to enjoy the rest of their last day.

Meanwhile, enjoy the few links below. I’ll see you back here on Monday!

A calligrapher freehands well-known logos.

“Sometimes a blank page is freeing. Sometimes it’s terrifying.”

Beautiful logo.

Brilliant way to display art.

frifaveHappy Friday, friends! I hope you all had wonderful weeks, wherever you happen to be.

I spent quite a bit of time outside this week, playing tennis and riding bikes. One day I even took my morning workout outside! Yay!

A personal design project and a fun side project for a friend has also kept me busy on the “work” front. I’m hoping to share some work-in-progress glimpses of the personal project here in the next couple of weeks, so be on the lookout for that :)

In the meantime, enjoy some links. And happy weekend.

frifaveI didn’t set out to go MIA this week. But you see, good weather has at long last returned to this part of the nation and I have been celebrating. We went out of town for the day on Wednesday, and yesterday I convinced my brother to go play tennis with me. Soaking up the sunshine felt SO nice. Can I just say how wonderful it is to be able to step out of the house or open the car door without experiencing a traumatic reduction in body temperature?

Anyways, now for some links! I mostly read every article in the Etsy seller’s handbook this week as I brush up and prep for my relaunch, but below are some of the fun/pretty/interesting things I came across, for your enjoyment :)

+ + + + + + + + + + +

Mucho respect for Andrew Carmellini.

For your reference, all you paper-writers.

Undeniably normal. And that’s okay :)

Some pretty photos of Italy, just because.

frifaveHappy Friday!!! I only have a few links to share today, but I want to know: what’s the best thing you came across on the internet this week? Leave a link in the comments!

+ + + + + + + + + +

Epic SF.

This is a rather brilliant cookie concept.

I love the open living room/kitchen in this apartment.

And finally, how to order coffee.

frifaveFriday Favorites has a new look! For now, at least. I’ve been thinking about nixing the random photos and giving this weekly feature it’s own identity. But believe me, random photos will absolutely still have their place here ;)

+ + + + + + + + + +

These photos do Yosemite justice.

In terms of large chains, I’m a Peet’s person myself.

Good Instagram tips!

I love that they call it Singles Awareness Day.

Note to self: you should work out more regularly.

 We are not our jobs. #identity

Considering how much ice cream I’ve been making lately, I need this information.

I’m partial to the makeshift double-boiler method, but this looks so fun!!

I wonder.

Ojai has been popping up so much lately on different blogs I follow. Maybe it’s a sign. I want to go.

Go pick mushrooms.

Cycling: “a harmony of diversity.”

And finally, I’ve really been enjoying the work of Jessie Webster this week.
