Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
How’s the weekend been treating you guys? I’ve spent most of mine inside hiding from the snow… but I guess I shouldn’t complain considering we didn’t get anywhere near the 8 ft. that Buffalo got hit with 😯 The forecast does call for snow for the next 4 days, though, so who knows what’ll happen.
Either way, more time inside means more time to spend online, so I hope you guys enjoy some of the great links I came across this week, and I’ll see your faces tomorrow with a new recipe!
