weekend adventures and a handful of inspiration

Last weekend my boyfriend and I took a little road trip across Whidbey Island. Here in the Northwest, any one of the San Juan Islands will give you an instant adventure, but the towns on Whidbey Island are some of my personal favorites. We wandered the artsy streets of Langley, took the scenic route...which is pretty much the whole island...between Freeland and Greenbank along the coastal roads, dined on fresh mussels and drank cocktails in Coupeville ("I'll have a Mango Sexy, please!") after perusing hundreds of art festival booths, and made a quick stop to take in the view at Deception Pass. It was a beautiful day and a much needed adventure.

Have you had any big (or small) adventures lately? Any big plans for the weekend? Any moments/books/places inspiring you lately?

If not, maybe you will find some inspiration in my "links for the weekend" list below.

- The crafty types go running. (Now that I am jogging again...C25K is my next big step.)
- An exciting read for those who love to plan, plan, plan, but want to feel more productive & present.
-The Light of Human Kindness will burning bright in Richmond this fall. Do you have a story to share?
- I'm dreaming of finding places like this. Where you fall in love with Mother Nature all over again.
- "What if you look stupid?" is my SGH. What's yours? Let's overcome them, shall we?
- I'm still working on my morning routine, and so re-inspired by this post. Might join the challenge too!
- Introverts take back your power."The world needs you and it needs the things you carry."
- Adding this treasure trove to my quirky US road trip list.
- I think I need to whip up a few of these summer drinks before the month is over.

Have a fantastic weekend!
