A Year of Picnics Giveaway + Best of the Web

Over the past almost 13 years of writing here at Design*Sponge, the greatest honor has been getting to work alongside some of the kindest and most creative people in our community. For three years author Ashley English helmed our Small Measures column (inspired her wonderful homesteading blog) and since then she’s gone on to write not one but TEN books, including her latest, A Year of Picnics: Recipes for Dining Well in the Great Outdoors (Roost Books).

Ashley’s latest book gets right to the heart of who she is and what she loves most: nurturing those around her. Over the years we all worked with Ashley, we got to experience firsthand just how much love she shares with others and how generous she is with her time and attention. Seeing that generosity of spirit carry on through her book series has been an absolute joy and her latest book, dedicated to seasonal picnics with friends, is Ashley’s heart in a nutshell. The book is filled with over 20 picnic ideas, separated into seasons and filled with delicious food and drink recipes (and tips for cooking and eating outdoors) like Smoky Chai with Cardamom, Rose Water, and Berry Coffee Cake. Today we’re giving away 10 copies of A Year of Picnics (!!) and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment here sharing a memory of your favorite picnic moment — or one you hope to have one day. (Mine is somehow clearing off the Brooklyn Bridge for one night, and making dinner for Julia and I to eat together and look at the city where we first met and fell in love). Until Monday, here’s wishing you all a wonderful weekend. xo, grace
