Good good links #52

I’m tempted to repeat my usual astonisment of saying how fast time flew by – it really did! – again but you can say that only so often before it gets old. Instead, I’ll say that spending time with my family has taken priority these past days and felt so good after we hadn’t been around each other for quite some time. Blog reading hasn’t been happening too much this week.  That’s why today’s list of good good links is shorter than usual. But there still was no shortage of inspiring, interesting and intriguingly delicious posts all around the blog world.

Happy Sunday!
