Can you believe it’s the last Sunday in 2013 already? Not to sound like an old lady but where did time go? I’d be dishing up all kinds of clichée sentences if I tried to whine about the year passing by at lighting speed but just let me tell you I do feel that way. Now that I got that off my chest: It’s also the last time I’m sharing some of my favourite posts in 2013. Not like there weren’t awesome posts every week but I somehow felt like everybody was sharing an additional lot of great posts during this last full week of the year. So the links below are just a fraction of all inspiring, helpful, hilarious and delicious posts I noticed this week. Enjoy and let me know any I might have missed!
However you choose to to spend this last Sunday of the year I hope it’s a great one for you.
