I miss you. Please come back and bring some sun, okay?
Okay, fair enough: it’s still kind of summery around these parts but only if you focus on the temperatures, disregarding the heavy endless downpours that have been a little too common these days. However, that gave me some more reading time to gather posts. If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have hardly had anything to share. So if today’s a rainy one in your neck of the woods, too: here are some fabulous posts to bridge over the time until the sun returns.
