Good good links #82

Happy Sunday, sun seekers! Okay, that last one totally just slipped for me there because I can say it definitely describes me these days. Every day lately has included a walk, some longer, some shorter, but I need to get that dose of vitamin D in. How could I not? Saturday wasn’t too amazing in those regards so fingers crossed for today! Moving on, though: links!

I swear there have been so many great posts lately I keep saving a few for the week to come every time because these posts are getting long enough already. Just so this intro isn’t adding to the length I’ll cut it off here and say that I’m pretty sure there’s something for everybody in the mix again.
