living with just a little less

And then just like that, we switched the page to a whole new year. Happy 2017! It's been cold in these parts ~ like, really, really cold for us, not to mention all the snow and ice.

This is the time of year that I reach for thick leggings versus pants, as I need extra layers of warmth like I need extra heat in my belly. This borscht recipe is one of my all time favorite ways to seek comfort,…
