Typically, our average weather here in February is around 60 degrees. So, it’s freezing, and I’m dreaming of warm nights near the campfire… Since it’s Valentine’s Day and we are really missing summer today, I thought why not make campfire cones? What
Welcome to our first Self-Care Sunday post! I had been debating on what to feature for our first topic, but then I thought about a daily practice that I have that literally has become second nature to me.
