Oh, hey there, friends. How is January treating you? Ours has been rather quiet. We’re holed up in southern Colorado romping in light snowfalls, making homemade hot chocolate (cocoa powder, maple syrup, + milk slowly heated and mixed on the stovetop), and doing a lot of reading and podcast listening while the weather outside is frightful.
