I hope everyone is having a good new year so far. This time of year can be difficult after the excitement of the holidays wears off and we’re still dealing with short dark days and nasty weather. It’s around this time that I inevitably question why I choose to live in a state where the temperature reaches 15 below zero.
This weekend I will be traveling to New Jersey to attend my best friend Sabrina’s bridal shower and I’m so excited to be celebrating with her. Honestly I think I prefer the role of bridesmaid over bride. There’s a lot less pressure and I just like having fun and supporting my friend. I’m sure it’s going to be a lovely shower and it will be great to see my New Jersey/New York friends again.
Here are a few links I came across this week.
It might be a good idea to avoid romaine lettuce for awhile. It has been linked to a dangerous strain of E. coli bacteria.

Here is an interesting video of an arctic fox and snowy owl appearing to play with each other. Most likely they are sizing each other up looking for an opportunity to harm the other to decrease competition for food. It’s a pretty cool visual though!
I recently talked about my problem of answering emails in a timely way. Here’s an article discussing how communication has changed and specifically talks about ignoring texts and emails.
How is your post-holidays winter going? Does anyone else who lives in New England check real estate in Santa Barbara this time of year?
