Monday Madeleines – You Can’t Get Too Much Winter in the Winter

by Mistina Picciano on January 21, 2013

We kick off this week with all things winter: snowball fights, condos for street cats, winter storms, snow globes and yes, even the flu. Guess what? In addition to being Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, today is also National Hugging Day. But be careful: spread the love, not the bug.
