I woke up early, and my day has been full of sunshine and fantastic things (like breakfast with one my oldest friends, and lunch with my sweetie, and recipes for pork carnitas that I am so making this weekend).

Oh, and Rand is working from home today. It’s basically the most magical thing ever, because every couple hours I get to barge into his office and make out with him.

Which reminds me, it’s been about two hours since our last snog. While I go do that, you enjoy these links.
