Wow. All I can say is - it’s been a minute. One of sheer denial that we’re in a new year and more that it's January again! January is likely my least favorite month. January’s past included grappling with the winter blues, nursing broken hearts, lamenting the holidays and all around trying to get a handle on a whole new year ahead.
