Hey guys! We’re officially a week away from SUMMER. Real, actual summer. I just moved into my new place on Sunday, and though it’s great to be HERE and not in a hotel, we’re not quite settled in yet. Between unpacking, painting, and generally setting up a new space, things have been a little hectic and I’ve been feeling kinda scrambled. I’m trying to get back into the swing of things as seamlessly as possible, but right now, updating the blog feels a little bit like going back to school after winter break…Rough. Once the craziness of the move calms down, I’m looking forward to a summer of relaxation, rejuvenation, and lots of ordinary days that I can spend focusing on TSB-related projects. There are a lot of cool things {read: not just posts and pics!} in the works that I’m excited to show you! Anyway, it feels way weird to be sharing my ‘link love’ piece this far into the month, but since it’s one of my favs, I figured that it was better late than never to get to posting.
