Go ahead, Nature Boy—camp for a week with only one shirt. Go for it, Gym Queen—work out for an hour on the elliptical and still smell like daisies. It’s time to think of all the stuff you can do with your time besides laundry. (more…)

We Heart: Zoe Keller’s Color the Pacific Northwest for Mindfulness

Coloring isn’t just for kids anymore. Adult coloring books are everywhere these days. You can find them in gift shops, bookstores, craft stores, and online. Touted for their powers of stress-reduction and mindfulness, coloring books with intricate designs are a welcome reprieve from staring at a screen all day. They help quiet the mind and give us something to do when we’re binging on Netflix. It’s a fun activity to do with friends while catching up at a coffee shop or cafe and makes a thoughtful gift as well.  (more…)

On the Radar: Planning a Visit to the Seattle Symphony

When is the last time you went to the symphony? Benaroya Hall is a beautiful and majestic venue that many of us hardly visit. Native Seattleites might remember when they took a grade school field trip to watch the symphony perform years ago. Those who are newer to the city may have never been, but many state that they’ve “been meaning to go”. The Seattle Symphony has something for everyone, offering a variety of programs, from casual and short to more sophisticated and slightly longer to family friendly. (more…)

Mmmmm. (more…)
