Happy Friday! I hope you all had a lovely week. I’m still digging out from under a huge pile of work, but otherwise I’m happy to say my summer cold is finally improving, and I finally have working air conditioning again. So all in all, a very good week.
I’m back with this week’s links, and I tried to make them pop a little more than usual to make up for last Friday’s lack. As a result, they’re a little more all over the place in terms of subject, but that just means there should be something for everyone. Enjoy, and have a fabulous weekend!
