Hello, hello, friendly faces! Happy Sunday to ya 😀
Someone needs to tell me what is going on with the weather up here… We usually start to feel a little hint of the oncoming winter by this time of the year, but it’s been sunny and hovering around 20C (68F) for the past week or so. Is this for real?!? I mean, I’m definitely not complaining, even if ” taking advantage of the gorgeous weather” meant helping out with the yard work this weekend.
Anywho! It’s that time of the week again where I share some of my favourite links from the past week. I hope you find some good stuff to read, and feel free to add some of your best posts to the linkup at the end!
