January. It was good.

So… January was good. Fast. Busy. Good. With splashes of surprise selfies of my daughters on my phone and DSLR. There was coffee. Everyday. Usually homemade. But not always… Because December was rather packed, we didn’t get to make our 2015 ornaments until 2016. We usually paint ornaments at the local pottery place. But this […]
