Hey, gals! Happy Monday from a very chilly Nor Cal today. 🙂


I looked out my window this morning to find snow capped mountains in the distance and a thick layer of frost topping the houses all around us. We don’t see a lot of snow ’round these parts.

There’s a chill in the air, but I’m trying to keep warm with extra socks and warm tea. What’s the weather like where you are?

Before you get swept up by work and responsibilities, let me know how you’re doing this morning. 🙂
