Friends! Hello! How are we? We’ve nearly made it through January, the most grey month of the year, in my opinion…so the rest is all downhill from here, right? We just returned home from a vacation with my entire side of the family you guys….what a way to break up the month.

Happy New Year! It’s been a while, friends, and while I have thought about you so very often, I have just been way too busy eating to check in with you.
