Hello, hello from the cloudy Canadian Rockies!
One more day snowboarding in the mountains before making the long trek home and taking up permanent residence on my couch. Bliss. It’s been an awesome trip so far, but I’ll have a recap up tomorrow (or Tuesday, depending on how beat I am when I get back), because today is all about sharing the link love!
Oh, and speaking of link love, I’ll be adding a neat little feature to next week’s edition, so keep your eyes open for more info on that some time later this week.
