The Wander Society


{This week: The Wander Society, living in a van, newsletters, and more.}

Hi all,

Below are 10 happy links that inspired, intrigued, and brought me joy this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. On a recent layover, I discovered Keri Smith's new book—The Wander Society—in a lovely bookstore in the San Francisco airport. I can't remember the name of the bookstore, but it was the best airport bookstore I've ever stumbled across! As I waited for my flight, it was the perfect place to spend my time browsing titles and wandering through the aisles. When I got home, I ordered Smith's book and researched The Wander Society. They have an interesting website and reading list.

2. And speaking of wandering, Amanda Sandlin—who designed my rad new logo—is hitting the road soon. Her recent essay—I don't feel ready to live on the road—is a good read.

3. Kerri Fivecoat-Campbell's new book—Living Large in Our Little House—comes out in June. You can pre-order it now, though. I’m honored that our story is included in the book!

4. If you’re thinking about starting a newsletter, read Austin’s post.

5. Based on my hiking experiences last year, I decided to invest in a pair of non-cotton pants for my spring and summer hiking/wandering adventures. Recently, I purchased pants at REI, and they fit perfectly into my tiny wardrobe because they double as shorts!

6. I’m an avid reader, and I’m looking forward to diving into some of Courtney Carver’s recommended reads.

7. Shanna Trenholm’s new website is beautiful!

8. Susannah Conway’s new book—Londontown—is out in the world. I can’t wait to buy a copy!

9. Aging in Place is an interesting piece about communities that are being retrofitted to accommodate the growing population of elders in the U.S. The essay also touches on letting go of stuff, walkable communities, daily life, and more.

10. Bailey Carver’s story and her Go Fund Me Campaign is inspiring because she’s committed to making her dreams come true. I made a donation to send Bailey to Boston this summer and I hope you will, too!
