Good good links #88

We’re doing tbings a little differently this week! By the time you’re reading this I’ll likely be on a train somewhere in Germany after saying today not tomorrow and on my way back home after two days away from the computer. That’s why I’m giving you my preliminary round-up of great posts I read up until Thursday for now but will add to it as I’m catching up on posts. So if you’re curious what else caught [as I’m typing this: is going to catch 😉 ] my eye check back on Monday. For now: Enjoy your day that’s hopefully filled with lots of sunshine! More on my mysterious travels to come …

Happy Sunday!
