It’s officially winter in Michigan. Our first snowstorm of the season. I think it’s the earliest we’ve had in a while. The roads are awful! If I wasn’t use to snow I’d be freaked out. No salt and no plows! Amazingly, I saw no accidents to or from Cara’s house. A true miracle because it’s … More Christmas Cookies
