Happy last day of 2017! Is it as cold in your neck of the woods as here in eastern Kansas? High of 7 in the forecast for New Years day. ❄ Perfect day for curling up with a cup of tea or hot chocolate and catching up with some reading.
Enjoy your holiday and here are a few reads and recipes for y’all!
