Once Upon a January (Monthly Wrap Up #1)

It's January 31st! We made it! At least, that appears to be the general consensus in the wrap ups I've read this morning. Apparently January took too long. šŸ¤” I'll admit, I didn't notice. But then again, I'm always dreading the passing of time. I've got so much to do and not enough moments in…
