Lundi links: 4/29/13

How was everyone's weekend?  I hosted a love letter writing party on Saturday in combination with my birthday celebration.  It coincided with LLYC (Love Letter Your Community), so the timing was perfect.  A post with pictures will be up in the next day or two.  In the meantime, here are a few links to browse this Monday:


-----

I think most social media users have experienced or already recognized that this happens, but Instagram's envy effect articulates the problem with the alternate reality that is social media.

-----

Jeff writes about his Three reasons to travel while you're young, which was a great reminder for me of why it's worth it to travel.

-----

I think Kirke's post about getting Back to work in Detroit is inspiring.  You can make a difference in your neighborhood - all it takes is one, and the number will grow.

-----

I missed Earth Day on the blog, but Missris shares five simple ways we can help the environment in her post Going green for earth day.

-----

I almost did a separate post about this last one, and maybe I still will, but the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum must relocate - and they need our help!  Located in Two Rivers, WI; this museum is in the process of moving to their new home!!  But they need financial help to cover the cost.  Neenah Paper is matching every gift (up to $15,000) -- so every little bit helps.  They'll mail you prints when you donate as well; I'm excited for those to arrive in the mail.  I hope I will have time to visit this museum once it's reopened in the summer (hey sister... want to road trip?)

    1. You're welcome! Kirke was actually on an ultimate frisbee team with me some summers ago, and I recently discovered his Detroit blog.
