I’ve always been of the opinion that if the weather is going to be below freezing, there should be lots of snow on the ground. 🐕

Trying to not let the cold weather interfere with getting that toddler and puppy energy out
Our 11-month old can officially climb up the stairs now. Nothing is safe and I definitely feel like I’ve entered the stage of living with two toddlers now.
New Five Iron Frenzy 🎵
In design school, a Five Iron Frenzy zip-up and jeans was pretty much my uniform. While so many bands from decades ago have been getting back together it’s more than a cliché now, this album feels different. It really has something to say. I’ve been listening non-stop all week and this review sums it up perfectly.
I’m grateful Micro.blog exists for a number of reasons, but today, it’s because it’s been the catalyst for me making 100 informal posts onto this WordPress blog (even if it took me awhile).
This morning I’m reading through several of the write-ups on the new WhiteHouse.gov – initial reactions from Matt Mullenweg and Pagely in addition to the longer piece by Fast Company.

A Call To Spy 🍿
I think what amazes me about the World War II era is just how many films and documentaries seemed to still be released about it every year. We thought Summerland was very good but it was a bit more niché. A Call To Spy really had something for everyone and retold such an important story. I’d definitely recommend for your next movie night.
Happy New Year! (this is 100% a scheduled post, I am definitely asleep)
Does anyone else watch the fireworks in London around 7pm and call it a night? 😅 I thought they did a fantastic job adapting them for the end of 2020.
RIP Flash. Yes, these were a part of our engagement photos. Unfortunately, infectious viruses will not also be reaching end-of-life at midnight.
Notes from Essentialism 📚

If you’re using the original Independent Publisher WordPress theme and want a retina-sized Gravatar image, this snippet of PHP will do the trick. Reach out if bundling it into a plugin would be helpful for anyone.
Seventeen states hit their current peaks for COVID-19 hospitalizations yesterday, including Indiana. Hoosiers, we have to do better.
