Hello, Gorgeous!

If you’re a new reader, “Hello, Gorgeous!” posts are a round-up of beautiful, random links that are making me smile this week. Enjoy!

Happy Monday! Have you missed me? I’ve missed you! For today’s Hello, Gorgeous! post, how about we play a little catch-up?

After last week’s Alton Browncast, Husband has been experimenting with cucumbers, and they may be a new favorite thing about summer. Have you ever had cucumber water? It’s delightfully refreshing! It will make you feel like you’re at the spa without ever having to leave the couch.

In other news, I’m pretty sure this girl is my spirit animal.


I’ve been reading a lot of Roald Dahl lately–especially out in the sunshine.


Confession: After never watching an episode, we’ve become completely obsessed with Parks and Rec. Over the course of a week, we’ve already binge-watched our way to season 4. I’m not even a little ashamed.

My favorite character is Ron, and the fact that Nick Offerman is a woodworker in real life completely made my weekend. You should definitely check out the goods on OffermanWoodshop.com Also, I’m completely in love with the site design but that is neither here nor there.


Other than that, this summer has been a whirlwind of new friendships, impromptu gatherings, weddings, and babies. Since Hello, Gorgeous! posts are always the most random of collections, allow me to end with a more serious link. NPR’s Scott Simon is by his mother’s side in her dying moments and, ever the journalist, is documenting the experience via Twitter. His posts are precious, and also bring back some hard memories, but what a beautiful way to honor her life…
