Good good links #192

Oh hello there! Yes, it’s been a while since we ‘talked’ again. Now I could come up with a dozen and the some excuses but I don’t think that’s cool so no. Life has been happening. The good, the bad. Blogging didn’t and yes, I missed it. So until I come back with fresh posts of my own, here’s some of what made me think, smile or get hungry from all around the blog world lately. If you’ve read any share-worthy posts lately, too, let me know in the comments.

Happy Sunday!
