In the past week since the events in Paris took place, a hidden beautiful moment from the horrific evil that took place was #PorteOuverte.
Soon after the bombs were detonated and the authorities asked citizens to stay inside, citizens who wanted to open their home to people who were displaced or needed temporary shelter used the hashtag #PorteOuverte, which translates to "Our door is open."
What a beautiful hashtag!
When you are looking for shelter, what better message to read?
Don't you want to live like that? Keeping your doors open for the weary and worn? (That can even include your friends.)
Hi from Paris! We are loving our time in Paris - full of exploring, cafes, long lingering meals (and work for me).
If you want your mind blown by a guitar solo, Blake Mills will take you there in this 20-minute jam.
I've never really listened to Wilco, but cool that they're giving their new record away.
- I was rooting for Federer at Wimbledon, and just saw this photo from the action. He plays so gracefully.
- Interested in finding out more about Pro Tools First
And this is the second Friday where Fridays are the international music release date! Out today:
Here is a good reminder for the week ahead: "God never hurries. There are no deadlines against which He must work. Only to know this is to quiet our spirits and relax our nerves." -A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God
Denison Witmer has a new record out! Support good music.
Another great piece from Seth Godin: "What does your brand stand for?"
Having grown up at church potlucks, Jon Acuff's potluck menu is really funny and he completely nailed it.
Lacey and I had our first AirBNB booking experience this week for a place in Paris. Excited to see it work.
I love what Zambikes is doing.
Now that I have cleared out about 5,000 photos off my phone, I finally have room to play around with some photo editing and not worry about space on my phone. I have really been excited about Mextures and the new VSCO. Here's one of my first edits using Mextures:
Man, it's been a while. Here are a few fun things from the past month...

RGIII, how do you do it?!
Don't miss new Svim Team tunes:
If you read a fair amount of articles or blogs, the topic of responding to your lifestyle when you say "I'm busy" too much is one you've read about. What Tim Kreider put out in the New York Times a few weeks ago is the best piece I've ever read on the subject.
If you're not a fan of David Ramirez, stop reading and get off my blog. Just kidding. Don't do that, but do download the free acoustic version of his new song, "Stick Around".
One of my favorite (and first) memories from growing up in Paris was Dad taking us camping and following portions of the Tour de France. Looking through these photos gets me hoping I'll get to go back to see it.
