Let’s talk about seasons for a minute before we get into the main part of this post. Are you entirely sure it’s November? Because I could swear it was August rather than that. On my walk today, I felt like a penguin in the Sahara – so hot! Not like I was complaining. Something else I’m not complaining about are the many thought-provoking, helpful and delicious posts I happened upon again this week.
One last note regarding the recent hot topic: as I’m sure all of you have read a lot about Essena O’Neil already so I didn’t focus too heavily on the topic in my picks. Let me know your opinion on it in the comments if you feel like sharing, though.
