Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys in ages, but I spent the majority of the holidays completely disconnected from all forms of social media, and I have to admit that it was pretty darn glorious. I was starting to feel a little burnt out for a while there, and a break was exactly what I needed to put myself in a fresh state of mind and reignite that spark. I spent a good chunk of the weekend brainstorming blog and business related ideas, and I’m super excited for what 2015 has in store.
I’m also super excited because today marks the beginning of Birthday Week! #happydance. 7 days until the big 3-0, and I’m ready to attack that sucker with a vengeance. But I’ll go into more detail about all that later, because right now it’s time for some Link Love! So I hope you enjoy some of the articles I came across this week, and I’ll see you tomorrow with a little Christmas 2014 recap. Bye!

Yesterday: picked up my house after the craziness of the holidays, brainstormed blog & business ideas, and eventually gave myself a Buddha belly from eating too many roasted veggies 😆
Today: going to church, experimenting in the kitchen, and going over to my parents’ for dinner.
