Return of the Link Love!

I used to love doing link love posts, but for some reason a few months ago I lost my enthusiasm for it. I think it’s because work got really busy and I was having a hard time keeping up with my blog reading, so I decided to just ignore the whole thing. I know, brilliant strategy right? Well now that I’ve got a great new system in place for blog reading, (which I’ll blog about later) it’s time for the return of the link love! But first, check out what my awesome fiancée built us for exactly $0 using scavenged materials. He’s the greatest. (And if some of you ask, I bet he’d blog about how he did it.)

My new fire pit. Planning on lighting this baby up tonight.

    Great to see you back doing link round ups. They are awesome for building connections with other bloggers and building up more backlinks. Thanks for the mention.

    By the way, very cool fire pit.

    I love the firepit. It looks awesome. I am working on putting one in our yard too. They are so relaxing.

    Thanks for including Daisy’s article this week. I really appreciate it. She sure gave a lot of alternatives.
