Let me tell you how cold it has been in the Midwest. Last night I went to bed with a thick, hooded sweatshirt on…with the hood up. The overnight temperatures (as well as my dad’s unwillingness to turn the heat up) have made for some chilly nights. However despite the frigid air, it’s great to be home. As expected, there’s been no shortage of baked goods, more than filling meals, and much-needed rest and relaxation.
