Lyssy’s Eats: Red Dot Coffee

What’s Up: January 2019

It’s my first What’s Up of the year starting with my least favorite month of the year. January is the worst month because all the excitement of Christmas is gone and it’s cold! But my year is off to an amazing start, and Jon and I are getting out of the cold next weekend so…

2018 Recap – The Best Year Ever!
