Home sweet home!
Well, not technically home, but it sure does feel like it! Is it weird that I actually feel way more relaxed and at peace here in the mountains than I did over in Maui? Maybe it’s an issue of familiarity and the fact that I’ve been coming here since I was a tiny little thing, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’ll always be a mountain girl at heart.
So hey! It’s Sunday! And that means it’s time to spread some link love! I hope you find lots of god stuff to read in this week’s collection, and don’t forget to add your own favourite links to the linkup at the end. Have an awesome Sunday! And I’ll see you guys tomorrow 😀
