Happy Friday!!! I am hoping to spend some time in New York this weekend checking out the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden, or possibly the Metropolitan Museum to see the exhibit on Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity.

What are you up to this weekend??
This week several of my fellow bloggers had wonderful travel oriented posts, so today I am having a "link party" to share some of my favorites:

Pamela, at From The House of Edward created a short film on Wanderlust, featuring her darling pup, Edward,  that will want to make your pack your bags and hop in the car for a road trip...
Jeanne, at Collage of Life, shared more on her trip to Myanmar and how the tour guides she encountered made the trip more memorable. Her photos are stunning!
Tina of The Enchanted Home posted about her personal bucket list for the "By Invitation Only" monthly gathering which involved quite a lot of travel...she is my kindred spirit! Although if my home was as beautiful as Tina's, I would never want to leave!

Leslie, at Around the Table, shared a recipe and video for preparing ravioli with sage butter that is truly a feast for the eyes. I could almost taste it through the computer!

Rosemary, from NYC Style and a Little Cannoli wrote about the Philadelphia Flower Show, which is continuing through this weekend if you are in the Philly area. She also wrote an excellent article in Destinations Travel Magazine about other flower shows around the country, which includes her spectacular photographs from the 2012 Philadelphia Flower Show.
 Erin, from The Elements of Style wrote a great post about using maps as wallcoverings, which reminded me of this quote by Diana Vreeland:
"Paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view"
 {Until we renovated it, my sons' bathroom had a wonderful wallpaper by Schumacher with maps on it...I wonder if that is why one of them is now studying International Relations!}
And, finally, I shared my article in Destinations Travel Magazine about Kids Sea Camp in an earlier post, but I also had an article this month on tips for renting vacation homes called Vacation Rentals 101. If you are thinking of renting a house this summer, it might come in handy!
Don't forget, the giveaway ends on Sunday, so if you haven't entered, don't miss your chance! I will announce the winner on Monday's post.
Have a lovely and fun weekend, wherever you may be wandering...
