Short Days – Long Nights!

Well my friends, the winter is finally upon us. I’m sitting sipping ice water with a space heater under my feet with visions of down comforters dancing in my head. On that note, I wanted to let you all know of the awesomeness going on around here this season! There is not nearly enough time for me to attend all of these goings-on BUT there may be time for you.

I generally stick to promoting the artists/causes that require the most help getting the word out there***for those of you who are saying HEY! Where’s that U2 concert that’s playing this month????
