  1. I didn’t know what to expect when I clicked on the link, but I am so glad that I did. What an awesome list! I love the variety of activities and can’t wait to tackle some of them. On my agenda is definitely learning some great seasonal recipes. But, as a relatively new homeowner, I definitely need to learn how to winterize my home inside and out!
