around the web in 10 links v2

Doesn't Molly look like the most relaxed cat ever in this picture? I was frantically cleaning, or something to that nature and she just gave me this look of put your feet up, unwind a bit with me. How do you say no to that face? You don't...

Time for a second round of around the web in 10 links with me.

I cannot stop reading Love Letters. Sometimes heart breaking, funny, but all and all a good reminder that the world is really looking for love, and well no one knows what they are doing.

Hello, this is Luke. For all the Gilmore Fans out there, he's out there .... maybe.

That time the actual author of the book I wrote about about on the blog, commented on my post. I couldn't believe it.

A history of TGIF, I for one cannot wait for the Full House reboot.  This was my Friday night back in the day.

I wish I could come, but I really want this t-shirt.

For a giggle, Kylo Ren as Undercover Boss. I cannot stop watching this.

I love TV, I really really do, however I am starting to wonder if there are too many options?

Would you ever have separate beds for you and your significant other?

A favorite picture blog that I follow. I love the pictures these two ladies post - the simple aesthetic is gorgeous. 

I really want to see this live show, I've been listening to the podcast fairly regularly. Have you listened to Mortified?

hello 2016

Hello 2016 - I don't actually expect to post all that much, I am not setting my own personal bar too high here, given that I barely blogged in 2015. 2015 was not the best year in the books for me, lots of hard life moments, no easy breaks, and even when you thought the universe possibly couldn't deal another poor hand of cards, well more disappointments, and sad moments. I am not here to make you feel badly for me - it's time to look towards some positivity. Even with all of that, I am going to look at 2016 as a fresh start, a new beginning. The past year will not be forgotten, but looked at as a step to get me moving towards a happier, healthier and more balanced 2016.

A sweet little love song for your weekend. My local radio station played this last night, and I cannot stop listening.  Happy Friday.
