Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
And happy [belated] Canada Day to my fellow Canadians 🇨🇦🎉, and [early] 4th of July to my American friends 🇺🇸🎉 I think that about covers it, eh? Unless someone had a birthday this weekend too, in which case… happy birthday! 🎁🎉 And I guess anniversary would fall in there too, so… happy anniversary!
Ok. Stopping now.
So, hi! It’s been a while since I took 2 days off from posting, but I figured the blogland would be pretty slow given the whole holiday weekend thing, so I took an extra day off to get caught up on a few other projects. I did almost put this up yesterday, though, since Friday was a day off for us Canadian folk making yesterday feel like Sunday.
But, nope. Today is Sunday, meaning it’s time to share some links I loved this week. Hope you guys find something good to read!
