link love

It’s the Saturday before Christmas! I’m going to be enjoying time at home in PA for the week and will be taking a break from posting until after the New Year. In the meantime, I hope to do a lot of great blog planning and make some changes to the site to make it a little easier to navigate. Also in the meantime, I plan to soak up family time, eat at our hometown favorites, and soak up more family and friend time.

Here are some links to keep you busy while I’m away…
