Good good links #123

Happy New Year!

Despite the fact I’m not making any resolutions and think New Year’s Eve is overrated I can’t deny the astonishment that another year has passed already. [Where’s the pause button in life???] Whether a new year or not: it’s time for another round-up of good links I happened upon during the past week. Granted, I didn’t spend as much time reading blogs as usual so if you’re reading this on Sunday the good good [food] department will be lacking still. I’m out for today but will add some delicious inspiration come Monday. For now:

Happy Sunday!

    Each year it seems to go by even quicker! It seems like just yesterday I began college- now I am half way through my entire time at university! I’m right there with you girl. Thank you for sharing your links. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend. 🙂

      Oh, I remember my first days at university like it had been yesterday, too, though I graduated what feels like forever ago. Time has an odd way of flying by.
      I hope you enjoyed your weekend, too, Julia!
