Happy first week of 2017 friends! I feel incredibly optimistic about this new year (as long as I stay off Facebook;). What are you up to this weekend? We’re celebrating our friends’ 10 year wedding anniversary and the boys enjoyed ice skating, they want to go again (maybe indoors this time!). Have a wonderful weekend, and here are some links from near and far…
