Good good links #130

Tell me it’s not Sunday yet! Somebody needs to pinch me or better yet stop the clock or [best option] gift me an extra two days a week because how fast is the year speeding by?? Maybe we need to start talking gifts again already? Granted, not Christmas gifts because that would probably be a little early. But I should have started brainstorming a birthday gift for my mum because a week from now is her special day. Ooops. Let me know if you have any ideas because many brains are better than just one. [I should really win a prize for my maths skills, no?].

All that rambling aside it’s time for another round of good good links. You might have noticed these lists becoming a little shorter in recent weeks which is due to the fact I haven’t been able to read blogs as much as before. I’d rather give you fewer links I really enjoyed than hastily add a million posts I only skimmed and assume you’d agree.

Happy Sunday and if you need a snack while reading you shouldn’t miss out on this Healthy Nut and Seed Brittle. Shameless plug-in …

    I really appreciated the article about having it all. I saw it play out in my mom’s life and I wonder if mine will be the same.
    The article by Lucy was very informative for me. I don’t think that binging is well understood by most people, even myself.
    Thanks for wonderful links like always!
