Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
How’s your weekend going? Mine’s been good but pretty quiet, with the most exciting thing probably being that I signed up for a little trial period at the Y to see if I might want to start going there. I’ve been going back and forth on the idea of joining a gym for a while now, but I just couldn’t get super psyched about it. Then a friend suggested a sports centre like the Y, and something just clicked. I haven’t “officially” gone in to exercise yet, but I’ll keep you updated on how things go with that.
In the meantime, it’s Sunday and that means it’s time to share a bunch of links I loved this past week. And a picture of Ky because she’s just too freaking cute. And fuzzy.
