Weekend Reads: Bundle Up for the Weekend
It is going to be FRIGID in Boston this weekend. Like, so freaking cold that I've received texts, email, and phone calls from the City about making sure to not go out for more than 10 minutes at a time when the wind chills are so low. I plan to snuggle up, bake something, cook something, and not leave my apartment (except to start my car) unless I have to, or to celebrate my mom's bday. LONG WEEKEEEEEEND! Stay warm, friends!
