Happy Sunday, friendly faces! And hellooooooo from my happy place!
Also known as: the mountains. I’m up here this weekend, escaping city life and saying goodbye to this girl before she heads back home (glad AB was good to you, lady!!)
It’s been a good handful of months since I’ve been out here, and I can’t believe how much my soul needed the trip. Yes, it sounds 100% cheesy, but it’s also 100% true. There’s just something about being out here that feels so right — I really don’t know how else to explain it. That being said, it definitely feels a little strange to be here and not be snowboarding, but…. soon. Soon.
So hey! I hope you’re having an awesome weekend too, and I hope you find the time to check out some of these awesome links I came across this week. I’ll see you on Tuesday with some good food! 😀
