  4. With all the new people, cities and projects going on, I’ve been SEEING a lot. Yet with all the craziness, I rarely remember to appreciate the view I’m so thankful for. Hope you are enjoying yours. photo by Kelly Rae Roberts

  5. Hello W&Ders, I wanted to pop in and say hello before I jet off to Seattle for the weekend. It’s been a trying two weeks… I’ve been battling the flu and received some news that rocked my world pretty hard. While it’s not exactly a negative change in my life, it has altered my perspective of …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. I am in complete denial we’ve entered the month of June. While I feel it impossible, the calendar and temperature tell me it’s true. Perhaps the denial stems from May being loaded with so many new experiences, challenges and risks, I’m still processing them. I’d love to share these experiences with you, but the truth is …

  8. Came across this at just the right moment today. Thanks to Apt #34! via Ten and Three

  9. It was touch and go there for a moment, but friends, we made it to the weekend. Did you hear it’s February already? This has been a notoriously cruel month in the past, but with the warmer temps and lack of snow, I’m optimistic this year will be different. After all, there are new projects, trips …

  10. Readers- It may be the time of the year, but I’ve been a little down in the dumps lately. I do my best to keep positive, but sometimes when a string of bad luck comes your way you can’t help but whine “Why me!?”. When I was in my (very) early twenties, my roommate and I …

  11. Ah, Friday is finally here. I need a couple beers and a good sleep after this week! But I’m particularly excited for this weekend because we are celebrating the birth of our friend Emily (HAPPY BDAY EM!) with a night out in the city. There will be dancing, drinks and a little leather dress I’m excited …

  12. I’m an anxious person. There are many facets and faces to anxiety, but the most debilitating part of my anxiousness is feeling scared, overwhelmed and insecure when making decisions- both big and small. I’ve felt a lot of shame around this character trait, but recently I’ve come to accept anxiousness as part of who I am. …

  13. Thanks to MPLS St. Paul Magazine for including me in their Best of 2011 issue. I’m honored!

  14. Holy cow, December is gonna be crazy. I’m sure you’re all just as busy as I am, so please, remember to take care of yourselves! Exercise, eat your greens, write in your journal, get some Zzz’s and tune the world out when you need to. Have a good one! Journal / Ear Plugs / Kale / …

  17. september has flown by at quite the clip, don’t you think? it’s been go-go-go since labor day, with weddings in St. Paul, MN and St. Augustine, FL (which was SO quaint), and i’m looking forward to fewer social engagements until the holiday season kicks in. i’ve got to power through a very busy work week before …

  18. check out the hilarious new column over at GOOD called “The Rules”!

  19. sticky days and longer nights are upon us, and the heavy summer air seems to set a magical haze over minneapolis. what do you have planned for these glorious few months? taking a big trip? making fresh lemonade? tending to a garden? summer’s allure calls for a slower place and leisurely activities, that’s for sure. as …

  21. * some snapshots from this weekend. our cabin was so adorable! check out that fridge…

  22. hi there! remember me? i wish i had a better excuse for my extended break, but i really don’t. i decided to take some time away from blogging to reevaluate the reason why i do this. people often ask me that question and i realized i didn’t have a good answer anymore. it gets to be …

  23. happy hump day! i’m already thinking about the weekend. lazy saturdays spent with a good book are the best way to spend a day off, no?

  24. a strong sense of self-worth attracts one and the same. someone said this to me when i was young and foolishly restless, and i sort of dismissed them. it means more to me now, as “man” is easily replaced with any number of wants/needs you face in your life. via that kind of woman

  25. i must be one of the few people who loves DST in the fall. that extra hour is magical and the shorter days are a refreshing change. maybe i enjoyed yesterday so much because this weekend was lovely, for no particular reason really. some how i achieved the perfect mix of work, relaxation, and a little …

  26. i have some kick ass friends. i know i owe a number of people emails, but i had to say thanks to those of you who left me a note, email, comment, in response to my (both inevitable and typical) bridal breakdown. thank you for your honesty, transparency, and saying those things that are hard to …

  27. this weekend was about pursuing pleasures; rich coffee and salty butter on toast, rooftop cocktails with dear friends, biking the city, girl-talk with my sister. i also took a weekend letterpress class at the minnesota center for book arts. it was such a great experience, i’d recommend the class to anyone who has a love for …

  28. happy monday! how was your weekend? i had my wisdom teeth removed last friday, so my weekend was spent with a tub of ice cream, and many, many hours of netflix rentals (amélie, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, breakfast club, and a little demetri martin stand up, to name a few). i was little woozy …

  29. wow. it’s only 12:30 here and today has already been a doozy! i’m signing off early to enjoy the long weekend. what are you up to this weekend? i’m looking forward to having some summery cocktails on the lake and doing a little bit of cooking! i’m feeling particularly inspired to get back in the kitchen, …

  30. i wish i could stay and chat with you all about your plans for the weekend, but i’m off to chicago for my bridal shower! instead i leave you with some links i’ve been enjoying this week. have a good one! + i love this amazing mid-century modern home via black eiffel + compare and contrast: …

  31. well friends, it is monday and i really wish i could just sleep through this whole day. on top of the usual monday funk, i am cleaning up the mess of having my purse stolen this weekend. i was dancing with my girlfriends at a bar and some jerk grabbed my clutch off the table. they …

  32. at the risk of getting a tad bit heavy here in cheery blogland, i just had to share this. gold stars for all of you out there pursuing your passions. no matter what the out come, it takes some balls just to give it a shot. “Everybody has a drama, a struggle that they went through, …

  33. i spent last night sprawled out on the couch, wearing my baggiest sweats, reading fashion mags with a facial mask on, blaring the latest episode of glee, eating cheez-its and ice cream for dinner. it was glorious. it’s not that i don’t do these types of things when nick is home. i’ve scared him to death …

  34. i’m signing off early to catch up on some last minute errands before i leave town for a dear friend’s wedding. it’s the first wedding of the season for me and i’m super excited to see these two get hitched. so i hand-picked a few pictures from one of my all-time favorite weddings.

  35. it has been so wonderful seeing some new faces around here this week! many of your blogs are new to me and i can’t wait to find a big chunk of time this weekend to devourer them all. i had big plans to compile a list of weekend links but i’ve been too busy slashing tasks …

  37. tonight, a man in his sixties, carrying many bags, dressed in medical scrubs, politely handed me a note card as he excited the train. it was scribbled with a message and he said “this is for you.” i didn’t look him in the eye. we had sat across from each other for about 20 minutes. maybe …
