Happy Sunday, friendly faces! And hello, hello from the mountains! 😀
It’s hard to believe there’s so much snow higher up in the mountains when there’s not a trace of it near the base, but I’ll take it if it means I can do more snowboarding! That being said, I’m pretty sure this’ll be my last trip this season since most of the resorts are closing in a few weeks and soon there won’t be any more snow to go snowboarding on. Le boo. Now to suffer through summer 😉
I kid, I kid. I won’t start complaining about summer until late August when I’m tired of the heat and ready for a little change. But I’m tired and I’m rambling and it’s time for some Link Love. Hope you guys enjoy these great reads, and don’t forget to add your own favourite to the linkup at the end!
