Life: So as you guys can tell we just didn’t even realize that we hadn’t even posted the January in review. Life has been crazy busy, we are going into our high season at work so it is just a lot right now. We are going to try and be better about staying on top of it though. Seth and I are thankfully going on vacation next week and I am hella ready for it. I have been writing a lot more lately and that has really been nice.
