Happy Sunday, friendly faces! And happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Especially to this little lady right here…
I’m not going to spend too much time talking about my momma today since I plan on doing a little bit of that in an upcoming post, but man oh man do I love this lady. She kind of rocks my socks off 😀
And so do these links! Although… definitely not to the same degree. But there’s some good stuff in this week’s link love, so I hope that you find something useful to read. And I hope that you show your mommas some love, and that you get tonnes of love if you’re a momma yourself. Happy Mother’s Day!
