Happy Friyay friends! I cannot believe how seriously cold it has been here in Kansas City this past week. We were in the 20’s last night and still currently this morning – not okay with me for it being this early in the season. Speaking of things happening early in the season, did y’all see my post on my home holiday decor I shared this week?
