The weather in Spokane has been odd this winter and I am loving it! Some days feel like spring is almost here and other days are just downright cold. I am so thankful for crockpot recipes that cook all day and make the house smell amazing. All I want to do is curl up in front of the fireplace with an amazing book and relax right now.
