There’s no place like home!! 😊
For real! I’ve got my bed, my bathroom, my kitchen. Gah! I can’t even tell you guys how good it feels to be eating hearty home cooked meals again (burrito bowls for DAYS!!!!)… although I have a feeling you probably know what it’s like if you’ve ever been away from home for any significant amount of time. I mean… who knew roasted potatoes could taste so dang good?!? And I seriously can’t wait to get back to sharing recipes with you guys again. It’s crazy how much I’ve missed it!
But that’s not why we’re here today, because today is all about the Link Love. I didn’t have a chance to do a lot of commenting while I was away (not even on ToL –> 😭😭😭😭), but I was still keeping up with my blog reader and doing the whole lurker/creeper/stalker thing like I did back in the day before I started my own blog. So I hope you enjoy the links that I came across this week, and I’ll see you tomorrow with some tasty FOOD 😁

Welcome home. There is nothing quite like your own things and the taste of healthy, home cooked food. It is great to get away and equally as nice to come home. Church, hike and taxes today!
It’s been a while – read: too long – since I did any kind of longer traveling but I know what you mean. I hope work won’t take over you completely again right away.
Traveling is so fun, but it’s always nice to come home!
Yesterday I went grocery shopping, meal prepped, and sat on the couch.
Today I’m meeting family for brunch, teaching BODYPUMP, and blogging.
Have a great Sunday!
