Happy [Superbowl] Sunday, friends! 😀
Will you be watching the big game today? I’m not the biggest football fan (it’s the Canadian hockey freak in me), but my dad usually watches all the big sporting events, so I have a feeling I’ll end up catching some of it when I go over there for dinner later today.
And I realize this is going to sound crazy considering I went from a place with 25ºC (77F) weather to one with -10ºC (14F) weather, but my gosh is it ever nice to be home. My own bed, my own kitchen, my own routine… it’s crazy how a week away can throw you completely off track. I was a little worried about this week’s Link Love post since I didn’t get to do much blog reading while I was away, but I think I still managed to pull a pretty decent collection together…
In my head…
