Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
How’s your weekend been so far? Our weather turned kind of nasty, so I spent the majority of mine either in the kitchen or on the couch – working on recipes and watching old movies. I never thought I’d the kind of person who’d be into classic black and white flicks, but there’s just something so sweet and innocent about them. My mom always watched them back when I still lived at home, and I guess she must have gotten me hooked because I probably watch more of those than I do the more recent films.
But I do more reading than anything else, and here’s a bunch of posts and articles that I loved from this week. Hope you enjoy! And I’ll see your lovely faces soon.
