The first links round up of 2022! I’ve missed doing these the past couple weeks, and I feel like this week’s round up is extra good as most sights are back from a week off and on their A-Game! I know a lot of us took last week off… I was dreading getting back to work but then I surprised myself and wound up feeling really really motivated and excited to get back into a groove. My creative juices were back in order and flowing again, and that felt really good – the break was definitely restorative in that way.
This weekend I am in LA, visiting my boyfriend. Just a quick trip but we have a lot of quality time planned – fun outdoorsy things… walks on the beach, hikes, and maybe doing a little architecture tour. I’ll keep you posted. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great. PS – I wanted to also offer up a heartfelt THANK YOU for your comments on yesterday’s post. This community is just the greatest, I am so beyond grateful for you!
