Here’s to another gorgeous summer week! The heat wave has ended and we are back to our traditional low 80’s summer weather here in the Pacific Northwest, with work at a healthy clip, Dan’s green card interview awaiting confirmation, the pumpkin vines getting so long it feels like they’ll knock on the door soon, and a whole lotta optimism about life in general. So much I’ll share with readers over the coming months, but in the meantime, here are my weekly green and other cool things I hope you’ll be interested in…
* Super cool to have our wedding story featured in this month’s Green Bride Guide! Next week we’ll be married a whopping two months and yet it already seems so long ago since we were having this celebration. I’m digging marriage 2.0 for sure :)
* Amazing photos from Dorothea Lange on the internment camps during WWII. Why do so many choose to forget that while the Holocaust was occurring in Europe, that our own country was running its own concentration camps?
* Always trying new varieties of guacamole and this one claims to be the best guac recipe. I’m all over it!
* Bike tourism taking off in Portland? Coolness.
* And adding onto last week’s coffee awesomeness, learn more about Cafe Feminino and the work they do to support women coffee growers – and support the foundation!
It is often easier to become outraged by injustice half a world away than by oppression and discrimination half a block from home.
