Happy Sunday Lovelies!
Hope you’re having a lovely Valentine’s weekend. It’s a 3 day weekend for me and Mom’s last weekend here too. We’ve been living up her last days in AZ shopping & eating out. It’s been fun! She started packing so it’s for real this time. She leaves tomorrow and I’m sure gonna miss her. With her gone, life will be back to normal. It finally feels like I’m back to my life after being injured an entire year.
Despite feeling more normal, this week had its sprinkles of unexpectedness – a visit to urgent care for smacking my hand on the treadmill, a new brace for my elbow injury and a Valentine’s date. Yes you read that right. I had a date on Valentine’s Day. I’ll share the details with you guys later because today I’ve got many awesome links to share with you. So grab a cup of coffee and muffin (or two) and settle in for some good Sunday reading. Have a great day!
