Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
Have you had enough of me yet? ? Today marks my fifth consecutive day of posting here on Spoons, which is actually something I haven’t done since… May(?) of last year [according to my WordPress stats].
But between my birthday, introducing Sweet & Savory Saturdays (which I’m STOKED that you guys are excited about!), and all the regularly scheduled posts I didn’t want to skip out on… there’s been a lot to talk about!
That being said, I’m going to keep today’s chats to a minimum because I’ve got a lot of good quality reading for you to do ? Hope you’re having the best weekend!
For my head…
