    Hello, sweet friends! It’s February! It’s 02.02.22 to be precise. We survived January. My goodness, to be honest, sometimes I wondered if I would. It was a really hard month for us.

    I’m not even going to lie… I’m getting desperate for ideas to get us out of the house. I know I’ve said it before, but winter is always hard around here, and this one has been the hardest in years. The temperatures have plummeted again…
