Happy Sunday, friendly faces!!
How the heck are you? I honestly can’t remember the last time I was this beat. It’s only about 8:45pm Hawaii time when I’m writing this (12:45 back home), and I’m basically ready to throw in the towel and pass out.
We spent all day at the beach today, and between the sun, the snorkelling, and all the walking, it’s a pretty big struggle to hold myself upright. BUT! We were super lucky and ran into the little guy while we were out snorkelling…
He didn’t come up as close to us as he did last year, but it was still great to see him swimming around.
And I’m afraid that’s about all I have for you as far as intros go. Heck, I should probably go back and reread what I just wrote because on a scale of 1-10, my ability to form coherent thought chains is about a 2.5… and that’s being generous.
So I hope you enjoy these great links I came across this week, and I’ll chat to you soon! Hopefully more coherently 😉
