John and I leave for our next road trip one month from today. I usually buy one or two new special items for vacation. It totally builds the excitement and I love using everyday things after the fact that remind me of vacation. Well, this weekend I bought a vacation bag – the Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Natasha bag. I’ve had my eye on it for months and I’m thrilled I finally bought it. Bonus points – it can hold my SLR camera and all of my stuff, rare for a handbag.



I’ve always been curious about trying black bean brownies. This new recipe for Vegan Gluten Free Black Bean Brownies over on Minimalist Baker may be the recipe that finally gets me to make them.


I love this article, it’s not rocket science but it’s a nice reminder – Daily Simplicity: 10 Habits That Will Make Your Life Lighter.


A fan asked Bill Murray for an autograph. Instead Bill gave him this. Incredible.


Isn’t this Running Stitch Scarf beautiful? I might just have to buy a kit from Purl Soho so I can make my own.


I’m in freaking love with this aggregate map of Subways of North America from xkcd.
