Oh, hello there.
Yes, I ‘m still alive. Still spending time around the blog world albeit being less active this past week. Going into the why and how this actually wasn’t intentional in the first place would take too long here. Especially since there are lots of great posts to share with all of you again. Tell me your favourites from the week in the comments, too, if I missed any must-reads.
