Snowed under

How is it the 11th of January already? Christmas seems forever ago already, commemorated only by plenty of happy memories (we had a wonderful time in Europe with friends and family) and the addition to our lives of some excellent gifts Рin particular books, foodie items, and a fun new doormat.

On the New York front, however, we’ve mostly been staying indoors and trying to keep warm.
