BOOK | Blood Bones & Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton. Lots of books on my nightstand right now seem to be memoirs. I read about this one in a couple different places and picked it up in Charlotte. I have thoroughly enjoyed this one - it's raw and interesting and her writing about food and the happenings in her life and in the kitchen I found really fascinating.
Next up is either A Life of Being, Having, and Doing Enough by Wayne Muller (he wrote another book I loved last year - Sabbath) or Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Joshua Foer.
MAGAZINE | Anthology. I got my first issue while I was away and devoured it on Sunday afternoon. Loved the articles. Loved the images. Love the size.
TV | Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. Something about this season has really pulled me in. I'd never watched his show before this season but have been DVRing it and love it. He's raw and the places he's been going this season are really interesting - I especially liked the first episode when he was in Hati.
ONLINE | Here's a few recent favorites:
Tiny Buddah | Simple Wisdom For Complex Lives. I especially liked this recent post: Let Go Of Fear By Stopping The Stories in Your Head
- Liz Ness's new site: Great Photos +
Redefine Your Lovely Life from Courtney at Be More With Less. This spoke volumes to me and the way I want to live my life.
