I haven’ been feeling particularly bloggy this week. Hopefully I will get some of my blog mojo back over the weekend and serve up more for you next week than I did this week. But I have some good stuff for you today, so I wanted to take a few minutes to explore more. Before […]

I’ve been a bit AWOL from the blog and social media this week.  My bigs are on Fall Break and I’ve been hanging with them as much as I can. But I still have lots of great stuff for you this week, so let’s go. Katy Bowman offers up a winter version of her popular […]
