It's the time of year when the light is returning and I am like "oh look, it's G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S outside! I'm gonna go for a run!" Then I realize that there're literally no positive degrees outside, I curse at the sun and blue skies for tricking me into thinking I could leave the house, then I trade my running shoes for hot chocolate.
I am absolutely jealous of all of you who are like "oh yeah, no, can't catch up right now, it's spring break, and I'm headed to Hawaii." I thought spring break was over once I finished college, turns out that once you have kids they go on spring break, and the parentals have to either find someone to take care of them, or bite the bullet and go to Hawaii. It's a hard life.
For those of you who are not in Hawaii right now, here's the weekly roundup.
Stay warm this weekend!

Here six women tell the stories of her lives through the stories of her jewelry Talking With Their Hands
