2012 – Day 18 National Soup Day

Wow, I am so ready to hit the hay – but I wanted to do a brief recap before I do. I was able to get up a little earlier than I did the day before, it has been hard to get up so early this week. Is it because it is so cold? I…… Continue reading 2012 – Day 18 National Soup Day
