Another week over just like … what?! It wasn’t the worst, though. Yes, lots of unexpected downpours and even heavy lightening – obviously after work … – and work itself wasn’t all smooth sailing, either. But: there was sun. I got back from an awesome day celebrating my sister’s birthday with family a few hours ago. There are always positives. And because this post isn’t about me talking about life’s happenings – we have the weeks in review for that – here are some great posts from the week. Hopefully adding some good to your day with food for thought and your stomach.
