It’s a brand new year full of hope and optimism.

We’ve quickly come to the coldest, and one of the snowiest months of the year. Let’s be thankful there are only 28 or 29 days this month. Early in the month, a groundhog wakes up early in the morning to predict how much longer winter will last. Then, in mid-month, despite the weather, Valentine’s Day will warm our hearts, if not our toes. And, if you are in between relationships right now, there’s a special day right after Valentine’s Day that is expressly for you.
