Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
Aaaand welcome to another Link Love, aka: a day where I share ALL the links I’ve been loving in the past week. Well, maybe not all of them because then there’d be 5 times as many links on this page and I’m pretty sure no one wants to sit there with 40 tabs open in their browser.
Actually, I always have a hard time deciding how many links I should include here, since I want there to be enough variety while still giving enough attention to each individual link. Ohhhh, decisions, decisions.
But you know the drill! Great links and a place to add your own at the bottom. Hope you’re having an awesome weekend!
For my head…
