It somehow feels like it's been a long week, but we're only halfway to the weekend. Why not kick back and watch this crazy gorgeous time-lapse video of the Pacific Northwest?

The video is by Portland photographer John Eklund, who has a whole blog of amazing time-lapse footage called The Art of the Time Lapse.

Aah. It's easy to forget sometimes how lovely this place we live in can look.

Sit back, relax, and have good chatting. (And as always, feel free to go hit up Talk Amongst Yourselves as well. See you tomorrow.
