Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
How’s your weekend going? I ended up having to take a bit of a personal day on Friday, which is why there was no post yesterday. But between a broken oven (!!!!) and feeling a bit of burnout creeping in, I figured it would be a good idea to take a small step back and regroup. SO! I spent a good chunk of Friday and Saturday going over the blog’s mission statement and planning for the upcoming month, and now I’m back in a way better headspace and really looking forward to November… which is in, like, 2 days 😳
Craziness. But I hope you guys have an awesome Sunday and that you find something worth reading in this week’s Link Love. I’ll see you soon with a new recipe that I’m kind of really stoked about. Bye!
