Miss Cellania's Links

Hi y'all, I'm back! I had a great time on vacation, saw five new states I'd never been to before, met my mother-in-law and sister-in-law, endured a mechanical breakdown and being stranded in a tiny town, and survived three weeks in a truck with two teenagers. We saw a lot of sites which I will post about eventually (probably at a site I get paid to write for). I also realized how much goes on here on the internet with or without me here to witness. So there's a lot of catching up to do. Meanwhile, here are some interesting links.

Glad you're back. You did a great job keeping us entertained while you were away! So much so that I kept wondering if you were back already.
Tell us about your trip when you can.
Thanks Miss C!
