Oh, hello there. I know I was MIA* ever since my post on Monday. I’d say: life happens. Life can also mean too little sleep happens – it’s not good and absolutely has to change. Buuuut you’re not here to hear me complain. Actually, I don’t have any complaints right now because today was just lovely. From waking up to sunshine to getting in a good mix of productivity and relaxaton – dear life, I’ll take days like that more often.
Onto what you’re really here for: lots of great links from all around the web. Enjoy!
*why do we say that when we can’t be sure we were actually missed? <- hi, overthinking everything. But really.
Have a great Sunday! May the sunny weather be on your side!
