Hello, hello from the gorgeous Canadian Rockies!
I think I may have mentioned [a few hundred times] how much I love it up here? Because it’s seriously one of my favourite places in the world to be. My only complaint is that the internet connection can be absolute garbage, which wouldn’t normally be a problem since I’m here to enjoy the great outdoors anyways, but I’m also trying to show some link love, which is hard to do when you’re browsing the web and it takes you about 2 minutes to load every.single.page…
Needless to say, this week’s list is a little shorter than it normally is, so I’d love it you could help me out by adding your awesome links to the linkup! Love you much! And see your friendly faces soon 😀
In my head…

Yesterday: drove up to the mountains, got lost in the woods, and spent most of the evening in a sauna and hot tub.
Today: playing it by ear! But it ends with making the long drive back home 😥
