Good good links #73

What a week! In a [mostly] good way work-wise and a wonky weather-wise [crazy hurricane!]. With an endless to-do list nagging at my brain I feel a little off the chart today.  Hence why I have little more to add for now. You know what to expect here: thought-provoking and helpful posts as well as delicious recipes that caught my eye and will hopefully add a little to your life, too.
Are you up to any fun happenings? Thanks to above – mentioned insane storm outside a run or any kind of outside activity is off limits for me.  I’m hoping to get creative in the kitchen myself today so … keep your fingers crossed!

Happy Sunday!
