What I’ve Bookmarked| The Last 5 Months


*awkwardly clears throat*

I’m a terrible blogger. Terrible. I’ve made references to some pretty big changes that have happened this year before, and I’ve definitely dropped some balls that I wanted to keep juggling; one of them is this space.

However, I’ve been getting writer envy reading some posts some friends have been writing and have decided to resurrect this space; also I miss writing for fun and not for work so…as a return I’ve decided to give you a list of the things that I loved reading/watching/listening to on the interwebs since the summer (my favourite physical books will be another post).

Grab a coffee and check out these links on everything from weddings to local government…
