November ’13 Links to Love!

Good Evening!

I write to you honestly exhausted–but all from great things! I’ve been working really hard at my day job, dog-sitting, and meeting with fabulous clients left and right. Still, I’ve had LOTS of downtime for LOTS of internets–so here’s some great stuff to entertain, educate, or make you think. As always, feel free to share your own in the comments, or let me know what you’d like to see more of.
