Welcome to The Best Things We’ve Seen This Week – Vol. 8! Reopening is the word of the week, and Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced her plan for the state. It’s a phased approach with cautious optimism. We can finally see a path through the woods but, as Mayor Lucy Vinis has said for weeks, we have to continue to do our part.
We want this space to be a place where we can share thinks we think people will like, provide tips for getting through your days at home or to just put a smile on your face. But the underlying reason why we are all home right now can’t be forgotten, so our first link every week is to a resources page on the City of Eugene website where you can find the latest information on what the City is doing, key resources and related information.
And now, enjoy this wonderful Twitter thread from a dad telling a heartwarming story about his daughter’s love for writing letters for her friends and how that sparked the United States Postal Service to respond.

Finally, some more good news, graduation edition.
This might be the best time-lapse we’ve ever seen. Here it is. Your moment of zen.
Have a good weekend everyone.
