Pi Friday

// a thousand threads
I know I’ve only just come back, but I’m already dreaming of the next vacation. Sweet summer road trips and days near the water… the best time of year is on its way and I couldn’t be more ready. This weekend, however, I will not be taking any road trips, or sunning myself on any beaches – I’ll just be dreaming away, making plans.

How about you? Do you have any big plans for this summer?

So far we mostly have dreams, and have yet to firm anything up, but we do plan to take a few nice long weekends away. Happy pi day! And happy pie in the sky, whatever you might be dreaming about. Here’s to making them all come true.


Eye this beautiful home, film and interview.

Buy some new (on sale) sunnies for spring.

Make a lovely get-together for friends.

Bake a pie, of course — it’s pi day! Then go to sleep, wake up and bake this crispy coconut french toast with sour cherries and chocolate.


IKEA’s new PS collection looks kind of amazing.

You’ve probably already seen this Zach Galifianakis interview with President Obama — but just in case.

This cake is insane.

Dare to…

    LOVE the new IKEA collection – I only wish we had more room in our apartment so I could buy it all!

    We’re trying to decide between a Mexican getaway and a few smaller CA trips for this summer…very tough to choose!

    It’s funny, but usually I never make plans for summer! I prefer traveling in the off seasons, I guess. Although I should consider taking a trip to a colder climate during the summer. I am not a fan of the heat and the past 4 years or so, it has been pretty brutal in Portland. I’m looking forward to spending time on the beautiful rooftop of our new apartment, day trips to Cannon Beach, afternoons at the farmer’s market and lots of picture taking/art making.

    I also have some summer dreams but for now I’m trying to get through spring. Thanks for sharing a link to the IKEA PS Collection. I absolutely love it.
