Life. That biatch. She happened again! The last few months have been a whirlwind of travel and change and friends and way, way over scheduling myself. While it's been fun, I'm taking a permanent marker to my planner and scrawling "NO PLANS" across the next two weeks. I don't know about you guys, but I end up craving quiet time at home when things get nutty and that's just what I need right now. I hope you enjoy some of the links I've been collecting over the last few weeks!
PS - I wish I could take credit for that awesome quote, but I can't and it was passed on to me by a very dear friend from someone who said it to her.

I think it's the best thing someone could say to me on a hard day, to be honest!
