Weekend Reading

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

I can’t find my two sweet faced children anywhere, a zombie 49er and a werewolf have replaced them and now they’re growling and demanding sugar. #saveme I was going to start a new blog series for the holidays today, but the local festivities and party preparations have taken over my schedule so I’m giving in. Tomorrow we’re celebrating Halloween around town, I hope you are all doing the same!

Here’s a roundup of links loved from the past week…
