Exploring the desert at night ranks up there as one of my most favorite adventures.

Every time I reached to take one out, four more fell out. It was a mess. Now it looks so neat and organized....
All this cold, flurries, and “polar vortex” talk has successfully kept me huddled inside like a hibernating bear; snuggled up in sweatshirts and drinking a variety of teas, cocoas, and coffees, thanks to my trusty Keurig. If you’re anything like me, this week has not been the most fun time for you...
