Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 😀
How are we liking the time change? It kind of sucks to lose that hour of sleep, but I’m a HUGE fan of the fact that it’ll be staying brighter out longer. The lack of daylight is probably one of the hardest things to deal with in the winter, so having the sun go down at 7:30 instead of 6:30 will be a welcome change. Ask me again in the summer when the sun is still up at when I’m trying to go to sleep at 10:30 and I might be singing a different tune, but for now I’m a happy camper.
And on that note, I hope you can find some things in this week’s Link Love that’ll put a smile on your face. I may be biased, but there are some pretty good reads this week 😉
