Weekend Reads: 01.24.14

Roussillon France

We’ve been struggling to keep warm here in Maine after another week of bitterly cold weather, so I particularly enjoyed reading this post from Heather of Lost in Arles. The colors & textures of her Menton remind me of our 2012 trip to Provence (pictured above) but her words inspire me to appreciate the present, because without these cold, icy days, “there’d be no spring.”

Michael whipped up this broccolini fried rice for us last night – so comforting, easy, & quite delicious. We highly recommend giving it a shot!

All of Lark & Linen’s South Africa posts are worth the read, but her latest safari photos are certainly some of my favorite!

A trip to Long Island’s North Fork has been on my bucket list of dream getaways for awhile, and Vanessa Jackman’s photographs of her September trip make me want to seriously start planning our own road trip down there.

Michael and I are simply in awe of this cabin’s renovation and love keeping up with its owners’ (winter) adventures in Michigan.

A cooking school in the Cotswolds and accommodations in an old farmhouse? Yes, please.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends – stay warm and eat something extra cozy & comforting!

  1. Oh hooray! Look, it’s me! :) Thank you so much for the mention. I always love discovering the links here and am happy to be a part. Bon Weekend!

  2. Your sister MacKenzie sent me a link to your blog because we also love to travel. I wanted to mention that my husband is from the North Fork, so if you ever want some advice on what to see or which vineyards to visit, please give me a holler. :)

    1. Thanks for your sweet message, Leandra! We will definitely reach out if we end up planning a trip. Vineyard recommendations would be amazing!
