Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
I hope you’re having an awesome weekend and enjoying better weather than we’re getting up here in Edmonton…
We had a big annual summer fair (K-Days) kick off this weekend, and I was really hoping to get a chance to go… buuuuuut it ended up raining on and off for pretty much the whole day so I spent most of my time working inside or running errands instead. Womp, womp. Fingers crossed that the skies clear up today, because even though I’m not the biggest fan of amusement park rides (motion sickness), I still love the atmosphere.
Speaking of love… It’s Sunday, and you know what that means! Time to share the links I’ve been loving over the past week 🙂 I hope you guys are having a great day, and I’ll see ya tomorrow with a fun giveaway!
