Aaaaaaand it’s officially summer 😀 😀
Aaaaaaand I spent a good chunk of the first day of it in the kitchen whipping up recipes for both Savory and Spoons…
Aaaaaaand I’ve officially made a return to Instagram after abandoning it for… about a month? We’ll see how long it lasts, but I have a good feeling about this one… even if it does make my poor old iPhone4 huff and puff like it’s on the verge of death 😯 But I digress.
It’s summer, the sun is shining, and it’s a day of rest, relaxation, and lots of link love. Happy Sunday!
In my head…
