Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
Can I tell you a secret? We’ve been having a pretty rainy weekend so far and I kind of love it. I mean, yeah – it was a little annoying not to be able to get my long ride in yesterday – but I used it as an excuse to spend a little extra time in the kitchen and whipped up a handful of recipes that I can’t wait to share with you guys.
That and the gloom and doom made cozying up to my newest obsession (golden milk everything) that much better…
I think today is supposed to be a bit better, so maybe I can sneak some biking in today.
I hope you guys are having an awesome weekend, and I hope you enjoy these links I came across this week!
