January is over. And thank goodness because it either looked like that photo or felt like -30. It was a rough month. Weather wise it was ridiculous. Family health wise it was not great either. Everyone is on the mend now and the temperature is warming up, so it looks like February will be better. And even if the weather isn’t better at least we get the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics! I also just realized with all the craziness of the month that I never posted a December wrap-up. I think I’m just going to have to let that go and move on. But I will include some of the books I got in December because book wise, December and January were great. I’m really excited for the new year and to keep up with the blogging. I really appreciate all of you coming along with me on this journey. I hope great books and a great month for all of you!
