it’s a wrap

We’re ringing in the new year with some dreary conditions. The weatherman is predicting lows in the 30’s tomorrow — the coldest we’ve had yet this winter — and our cold fronts are usually preceded by cloudy, rainy days. My mom bought me a couple of these extra-cozy wraps for Christmas,…
