This week we are thinking about and celebrating local places, local-ness, dogs, and picnics. Let me explain!
Today is Dog Appreciation Day, which is just tremendous for so many reasons. Dogs are all about living in the moment, and being entirely content exactly where they are in body, mind, and spirit.
And since Saturday is National Eat Outside Day, I think we should all spend the day outside with our pooches enjoying a picnic. There's nothing that sounds bad about that, right? Consider that aside from some well-earned downtime, there are health benefits too!!
So in the spirit of having your sumptuous picnic with your pup somewhere in the pines of Prescott, I wanted to share a list of lovely local spots for you to checkout and explore. Be sure to check first if the location you have in mind allows dogs, or requires them to be on leash.
Lets get to it!

One of our goals here at The Whiskey Porch is to provide well curated, high-quality resources to help you on your journey to creating a smaller & simpler life in your Nordic bungalow.
This is my first collection in which I'm going to share some of my all-time favorites, and my focus will be books and publications here.
Let's get started:
American Bungalow Magazine
This is an extremely high quality periodical with a subscription offering (4 publications/year) and the opportunity to purchase back issues individually.
It's a great source for learning about the ins and outs of this architectural style and it's history. The articles are all very well written, and in-depth. The photography is spectacular
It is definitely oriented around the purest concept of the original bungalows, but sometimes features newer builds or remodels with a more modern aesthetic twist.
