Happy Sunday, friendly faces! And hi, hello from the mountains!
Squeeeee! Actually, I say that a little over-enthusiastically, because the mountains whooped.my.butt this time around. Not only was the way here a little treacherous (hellooooo foggy and icy highways), but we spent a decent amount of time out on the slopes and you can say that my body is feeling it.
I could really go for a massage right about now. Or a slice of chocolate banana bread ?
But I hope you guys are having an awesome weekend! And I hope that you find some good stuff to read in this week’s Link Love. I’ve got one more day here in the mountains, but I’ll [hopefully] see you tomorrow with those banana oat fudge bars that I’ve been mentioning — which you would have seen sneak peeks of if you follow me on Snapchat (runningspoons) ?
For my head…
