Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
How’s your weekend going?! Today’s my last day here in Vegas, and holy.snap… how has it already been 4 days?!?! We packed so much stuff into such a short time that there was barely any time to sit down and relax, but I’m oddly not feeling all that tired. Granted, I did somehow manage to sleep an average of 9-10 hours a night (!!!!), but still! It’s been tonnes of fun.
Home’s good too, though. Home with bed, and kitchen, and temperatures that aren’t 43ºC (109ºF). Phew. Yeah. It’s been hot around these parts, and I spent the first 2 days rocking a massive headache that I’m 99.9% sure was the result of dehydration. Apparently my little Canadian self isn’t so good in the desert.
But now I’m rambling, so what’s say we chat later and I let you guys enjoy these awesome links that I came across this week. I’m catching a red eye out tonight and getting in super early tomorrow morning, so I’ll see ya at home!
