Another week is over and summer is finally there! Or, well, at least meteorologically because the weather’s not telling it today. Though as I’m typing this the sun is peeking through the clouds so I’d better keep this short and then head outside to catch some Vitamin D. Not before sharing some great posts I read this past week with you, though. Just as a heads up: I’ll add more to the list tomorrow as I have a few more open tabs I wanted to read but haven’t yet and marked some recipes I meant to include. The reason I’m already sharing this unfinished list now is that a) I want to keep Sunday as my time to share Good good links and b) I’m able to use the internet for an hour or so right now. Enough rambles, though. Happy reading and …
Happy Sunday/Father’s Day!
