Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
So I was writing the title for this post and literally just realized that we’re coming up on the end of February. Like… what? Wasn’t it just Christmas? I mean… just last week I said to someone “it’s never this warm in the middle of January,” which… no, it’s not… because it was actually the middle of February.
Mind = blown.
But hey! So it’s time for another Link Love, and while I actually really enjoy doing these every other week, the problem is that I end up hoarding a few too many links over 14 days and having to cut some because I don’t want you guys sitting with 30+ tabs open in your browser. On the bright side, I get to revisit some good reads that I loved and apparently forgot about… so it’s wins all around.
Hope you guys are having an awesome weekend, and I’ll talk to you soon! <3
