Current state: In utter disbelief about the fact 1/4 of the year is already over again. Hi there, April!
For some reason, this week’s edition of Good good links turned out to be very food and intuitive eating-centric. I’m not entirely pleased with that fact because life absolutely revolves around more than just that. But a) it’s how things organically worked out this time and b) the weather is too gorgeous for me to feel like spending more time in search of non-food/diet posts to create a balance ;). I hope you’ll forgive me or – as they’re good posts still – actually enjoy these links.
Happy reading and happy Sunday!
