Happy Sunday, friends!
Did you have a good Valentine’s Day? I didn’t end up getting a chance to Skype with J, so I spent the majority of my night cuddling up to a good book and some chocolate instead. Not my first choice, but I suppose I can’t complain — the man did send flowers, the weekend is a long one, and the weather’s finally warmed up so I’ve finally been able to get back out on the slopes again. Woop, woop!
I hope you guys have an awesome Sunday, and if you find yourselves enjoying some downtime, be sure to check out some of these great links!
