If I’ve realized anything the past two weeks or so, it’s that good stress is definitely still stress. I’m currently dealing with a lot of {awesome!} little life updates, and I’ve been majorly neglecting my online activities/responsibilities in favor of IRL demands, like traveling, apartment hunting, and preparing for our impending move. Things are a little chaotic at the moment, so I apologize for blog posts that have been few and far between, and engagement and interaction on Instagram that has been sporadic at best! Everything is good, and things should be back to normal soon! ANYWAY, now that all of that is out of the way, it’s time to catch up with some link love.
