mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week? I’m feeling a little under the weather. The freezing temps followed by a few days of weird-ass balmy climate has everyone battling the ookies it seems. Are you in the same boat? BLECH! Here’s to a fast recovery. I’ll be taking it easy over the next few days and hopefully be right as rain by the weekend. I’d love to hit up a few thrift stores, DIY some coconut body scrub (#WinterSelfCare), and attend a film screening at my husband’s university. Sending you healing vibes if you need ’em, and here’s a little reading material if you need an excuse to curl up on the couch with your laptop…

mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week? I’m missing Louisiana already (we had an awesome time there last week!) and am still reeling over the book I finished on the plane ride home. Have you read it? Many of you mentioned on this post that you’d like to see me tackle more book posts on Finding Delight and I’m happy to oblige. I have a few reviews in the works and also an idea for an Introvert’s Book Club (would you like to hear more about that??). But while we’re on the subject, I’m happy to announce that the winner of the Spring Fling Giveaway is Katja of Katnapped.com. I’ll be in touch! Thanks to everyone for participating and keep an eye out for more giveaways round these parts. Ok, now that’s squared away, on to the links…
