Good good links #48

 Long Short time no talk! While you might have seen me highlighting some of my favourite older posts from other bloggers Spill it Sunday-style yesterday today is all about the more recent ones.  I had the hardest time picking only three and even on Sundays I could add more and more posts. But it’s summer and I know both you and me would rather enjoy as much time outdoors as we can so that’s that. Enjoy the links and enjoy the sunshine!

Happy Sunday!
