Link love (Powered by onion dip and cold winds)

We’re now into the home stretch of winter, and spring is in sight. The mornings are lighter and the rain offering ever-longer windows between downpours.

Yet the last few days have been bitterly cold, which doesn’t exactly have me looking forward to our wintry road trip down south next month. Give me strength!

Luckily, a pretty sweet opportunity came up for me to visit Queenstown later this week, so I’ll be getting a taste of what’s to come. Expect plenty of photos…

  1. It’s funny you’re talking about winter and cold weather when people are wearing shorts and tank tops in my city. I’ve never been to your half of the hemisphere before :0) Will have to visit some time. Have fun on your trip.

  2. Thanks for the mention! Today was chilly here too so I made some soup in my slow cooker to stay warm. Most people are burning up in summer heat but not us!

    Have a great trip!
