it's still cold don't you know: a sisterly collaboration

yayyyyy!  i am back!  i had such a nice break.  i partook in frolicking-o-plenty...i say "frolicking" because it felt very much like spring in this part of oregon.  i happened to speaking to my sister, tara, yesterday and told her the very same thing.  she pointed out that no one had been frolicking in her neck of the woods.  why?  because she lives in st. paul, mn and it is just plain frigid round those parts.  i had, quite obviously, have not been thinking of my freezing cold midwest/east coast neighbors.  i am here today to tell all of you that i do care.  i care so much that i asked my freezing sis to help me with my first post of the new year!  we each compiled 5 coats, 5 pairs of boots and 5 blankets to keep you all cosy wherever you may be...
