I had a beautiful weekend! I was surrounded by friends, met new ones, and spent some time in the wonderfully warm outdoors looking forward to springtime. It was very well spent, and very good, because it is my last free weekend for a little while. I start my weekend store at Rust Belt back up next weekend, so taking the weekend to enjoy myself thoroughly was indeed wonderful!
Here are some links to lots of other wonderful things from my beady friends:
