Good good links #195

For the first time in a long while, I actually found myself with too many links to share – by Friday night already! Usually, I take the weekend to browse a little more to fill those empty spots but today, I am in fact holding a good number back for the next link lovin’ post.What this also means, though, is that I didn’t spend much time scouring blogs this week so if you happened upon any posts I should absolutely read: let me know in the comments!

Happy Sunday!
