Good good links #83

If I was to start this post talking about the weather like I did in past weeks – which I obviously won’t … clearly not – I’d have to whine about the lack of sunshine. But I told you I wouldn’t so instead I’ll leave it at saying that the weather shouldn’t define our mood because there’s something good in every day regardless – if we choose to see it. Ergo: If it’s rainy – or even snowy? – in your neck of the woods that’s a good reason to snuggle up and spend some time catching up on blogs. See? Bad day turned around. If only everything in life was that easy …

Happy Sunday!
