Friday Favorites

It's been a hot minute since I've shared a Friday Favorites post, but I'm hoping back on it and I'm sure you will be glad to stopped by to check out today's list! PS I'm always looking for new (to me) and exciting things, so make sure you let me know in the comments some of the things you have been loving lately! But, without further ado, let's jump right into it!

The Kindness Diaries

A friend of mine mentioned this Netflix series on her IG stories a couple weeks ago so the hubby and I put it in our queue. The host, Leon Logothetis, travels the world with only a vintage motorbike and the kindness of strangers, which he pays back in unexpected, inspiring ways. The episodes are only about 20-25 minutes long and always leave us with a smile on our face (and a tear or two in our eye). {We used to watch Extreme Makeover Home Edition on Sundays and the hubby would call it his "crying show" because it always left him in tears... let's just say this one is very similar ;)} PS When I was doing an image search for this one I noticed he also wrote a book - guess I'll have to give that a read soon too!


Candy Man

A friend sent me this article through Facebook and said it reminded her of something I would do when I was in my 90s. Let's just say it made me smile! Here's to hoping I make it to 94 years old (and am still spreading a little extra kindness to those around me!)! And Hershey's, inspired by his example, will be spotlighting him in a new marketing campaign.


Every Saturday, Bob Williams, a 94 year old World War II vet, retired teacher and high school football coach walks into a Dollar General store in Long Grove, Iowa, and buys a box of Hershey's milk chocolate bars. Williams hands two to the cashiers, a third to the person behind him in line and then sets off around town handing the rest out to anyone he sees.


Thank You, Zetterberg

Okay, so I can't say I "like" that the Detroit Red Wings' captain Henrik Zetterberg is officially retiring (due to a degenerative back condition he was deemed not healthy enough to play this season) - even if deep down we knew it was coming, but I at least wanted to take a quick moment to thank him for all of his time, love and effort that he gave to the Red Wings, the city of Detroit and to hockey in general. He was definitely one of the good guys! We will miss you Zetty!

National Public Lands Day

Saturday is National Public Lands Day. National Public Lands Day is celebrated annually at public lands in the United States on the fourth Saturday of September. It is a signature event of the National Environmental Education Foundation, which promotes both popular enjoyment and volunteer conservation of public lands. National parks, monuments and forests that charge fees will be free Saturday in honor of the 25th National Public Lands Day. It’s also the largest single-day volunteer event for public lands, according to the National Environmental Education Foundation’s website. Last year, about 169,000 people turned out to improve local, state and federal public lands. Ryan and I haven't decided how we'll  be celebrating, but you better believe will be out in the great outdoors (and doing our part to leave it better than we found it)!
