Good good links #122

Hello, hello. Did you have a wonderfulChristmas holiday spent eating good food and making memories?

Are you feeling it, too? The sadness of the holidays being over again  already – Christmas almost a fleeting memory only* – and the new year so close by? It’s a very very weird time of the year. With Christmas Eve falling on a Thursday I even got the week days all mixed up and almost forgot about the links …  major oops. But here we go!

*allow me to be  alittle dramatic, yes?

Happy Sunday!
