VIDEO: Back to the Start… and Friday Links

February 17, 2012

This Chipotle ad has making the rounds lately. The company seems to be doing fast food the right way, if that can be said. It’s been my favorite chain for a while because of its focus on local, organically raised meats. With the odd exception, I tend to eat vegetarian when I’m out if I know the chicken, beef, or pork is industrially raised. More and more places, however, are wising up to the consumer trend of wanting local and ethically raised meat, so that’s good news for eaters like me.

I’ve got a busy weekend ahead: I’m going to start packing for Spain, attend the baptism of a sweet little girl named Sophie, and spend time with my hubby on Monday because he has the day off — yay! Here are some fun items I found to share with you as we head into the weekend…

  • Great advice from style icon Iris Apfel (spotted on Design Mom).
  • Wendell E. Berry — noted poet, essayist, novelist, farmer, and conservationist — will deliver the 2012 Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities at the Kennedy Center this April, and the SlowMama crew will be there!
  • I’d love a cottage like this.

Have a slow weekend, and see you back here on Monday!

I love that Willie Nelson cover. Also, Iris Apfel. Lord, let me live long enough to one day be as cool as she is…

Joe and I are going to be at the Wendell Berry lecture too! I’ll say hi if I see you! Can I just say …. very excited. I love that man and his wisdom … and his poetry.
