Happy Friday. It has been a slow-ish start to the new year around here. I’m trying to depart from my usual new year mode of feeling like I need to re-organize my entire life. It feels like being off social media is helping. I’ve already finished a book (loved it) and we’ve been building lots of fires in the addition. It’s been slower, mellow, nice. No big plans for the weekend but I’m about to dive into this book after a few friends recommended it. Wishing you all a good weekend.

Here’s the best of the week…
