Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
How’s the weekend been treating you? I had a freaking awesome Saturday, and I can’t even really tell you why since nothing out of the ordinary happened 🤔 I just woke up in a great mood, which I’m going to go ahead and assume was the result of a pretty great sleep. Or maybe it was all those brownies 😋
In all seriousness, though, a while back, I accidentally figured out that making myself stay up later (i.e. 12-1am) and waiting until I’m good and tired before going to sleep makes me sleep way deeper and longer than when I used to go to sleep at 9:30 or 10 because why not. I’m not sure if that’s a legit thing or it’s all in my head, but it seems to be working so I’ll keep doing it for now. Besides, I kind of love that it gives me a few extra hours of free time at the end of the day.
But I’ve got a lot of awesome links for you guys in this week’s Link Love, so I won’t keep you with my rambles. Have an awesome Sunday, and I’ll see your gorgeous faces tomorrow!
