You ask most reporters what they enjoy about this job, and I guarantee most will mention the fact that we are always doing something different. I think of it as each day being an opportunity to learn something new or be exposed to something new. It can be subjects, places, things or people.

Today it was a person.

I interviewed Dr. Marla Spivak the Director of the University of Minnesota Bee Lab. Her life has been spent studying bees and their health. Decades ago when her interest in bees took off, she had no idea there would be a point in our existence that her expertise would become a critical matter. My study was about how bees are dying in great numbers. Dr. Spivak says we can all help by providing bees with a more nutricus base. Flowers!! She wants us to plant more flowers. It almost feels surreal to talk about a serious problem that can, at least partially, be solved by adding beauty to the world. She has my vote.

Clearly others find her amazing. She even did a TED talk. It’s had almost 2 million views.

She was one of those unique people living a life completely of her choosing, so it seems. A bit eccentric in a brilliant way. The lab was surrounded by vintage bee/honey kitsch.

It was decorated with preserved/dried bees and scientific bug books. It felt like a creative display in an anthropology store.

Today I feel inspired after spending time there.

Virginia Knows

My favorite old house to look at is the English cottage. They are cozy. Can be either bright or dark. The wood used is always so rich. They don’t make a grand statement of riches, unless, of course, you own one now and have updated it. I dream of one day having a home with similar qualities. This is Virginia Woolf’s house. As a lover of green this room is awe inspiring.

Domaine Home featured that Kardashian mom on its Instagram account. All the non US Weekly readers reacted. (Including me, unfollowed) I look there for chic design ideas & refreshing photos, not the typical celebrity garbage that feeds off mass insecurity. Insulting. Apparently she has out a cooking book? I didn’t buy Gwyneth’s and I’d never buy hers. I know it’s a business but know your readers .

Congresswoman Gabby Giffords spoke in Minneapolis today. I was lucky enough to cover it.

Regardless of what she’s talking about, she’s an inspiration. Shame on me for ever complaining.

One of my favorite magazines – House Beautiful made a list of things ladies shouldn’t have in their houses. No mention of dog related products?

Matt & Christine, Finally

On 16, Oct 2014 | No Comments | In Musings | By Lindsey

Happy early Christmas for my intended. (FiancĂ© makes me feel cheesy) Matt didn’t get to see Fleetwood Mac the other day. I could tell he was dying to be there with me. Made me sad for him. Well, they are coming back!!!

In other news, don’t get me started on the $$$ of concerts. Once in a lifetime show for Matt. Well, until the gang needs more cash, I guess.

Bridget’s brother Bandit is happy for Matt & me. Too bad the siblings can’t go to the wedding.
