Hello, Laura from the future here (well…November 2020)! I’m popping in at the start of this post to say I’ve spent this week updating it since originally posting this in December 2018. You might remember that I moved this year + I’m living in a colder part of the country, so now more than ever,…Read More

Thanks so much for your support— Laura
