Weekend Links is back! One of my favorite recurring posts gathers weekly highlights from around the web and the world.
1. Spring is just around the corner here in the Northwest and I'm planning a hiking trip to Saddle Mountain State Natural Area, open for the season on March 1, known for trails lined with wildflowers and panoramic views. The description sounds like it will be a great trail, hopefully also suitable for a baby in a hiking backpack!
2. For the days I don't go to the yoga studio that opened just around the corner, I started the Yoga with Adriene 30 Days of Yoga Challenge. It's easy to get caught up with other things in the morning, but I feel so great when I take 30 minutes to center myself. I can't make it to the studio more than a couple times a week and this video series is a great way to supplement my practice.
3. During our trip to Santa Barbara last week, I had horchata at Los Agaves with the perfect amount of cinnamon. An autumn-inspired take on the drink, this recipe for spiced pumpkin seed maple horchata from The Bojon Gourmet sounds amazing.
4. Photojournalist Lynsey Addario speaks with Fresh Air's Terry Gross about her work, being kidnapped, and her new book It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life of Love and War. I used to spend a lot of time interviewing some of the world's best photojournalists when I worked at World Press Photo. Their passion and dedication is admirable to witness and Lynsey is no exception.
5. Illustrator Carson Ellis' work is on show at Nationale in Portland for her new book which explores the concept of home in all its forms and with all its similarities.
6. Heidi Swanson has a new cookbook coming out in September. Near & Far chronicles her cooking inspiration from San Francisco (near) to Morocco, Japan, France, India, and Italy (far).
Happy weekend to all!
