Bitte (& Friday Links)


We’re wrapping up our week in Hawaii (so soon!) and I have to send a hearty thank you to everyone who shared recommendations for what to see and do! I’ve been posting photos to Instagram.

In the meantime, I am excited to share that my friend Maia successfully met her funding goals for her new online children’s shop: Bittesustainable classics for modern kidswent live Wednesday! I was honored to be interviewed for the Bitte blog and to share some of my picks. (Bonus: these beautiful photos of me and my kids by Michelle Drewes that I’ll treasure forever.)



I hope you’ll check it out! (Update: Maia is offering 10% off my picks sitewide through the end of September with the code HITHERTHITHER10.)

Some other items of note…

Hudson started snorkeling on this trip (!) and he’s so enthusiastic—it’s awesome. We got him this “dry” snorkel and it’s works so well. I highly recommend it for beginners or anyone who has trouble purging her snorkel.

Such a great question. As usual, Rachael puts it so well.

Vacation reveals how hard it is to stop looking at my phone—especially because it’s now my camera, my alarm clock, my eBook, my roadmap… so this made me laugh.

Back-to-school needs that money can’t buy.

How do you get motivated to get sh*t done?

Recently re-read this Davis Sedaris piece on what wearing a pedometer can do to you. So good.

Really enjoy the “How do you make a living?” series. Reminds me of why I wanted to start The Work We Do.

I also contributed a short write-up to a local Sacramento site, City Scout Magazine, about the opening of a new coffee shop in Davis. (The opening party was overflowing with cameras… I got caught on my phone.) I’ll be contributing a guide to Davis, soon.

Finally, what cities would you like to see featured soon in the 5 Things series? (And any other requests are, of course, always welcome!)

Have a great weekend!
