It has been unseasonably "warm" here in Cleveland, Ohio, and at the time of this post, we haven't even gotten any snow yet! Here we are in January and while there is still no snow- the hawk is out! The wind ain't no joke- I live close by the lake and feel like we are always 20 degrees colder than everybody else so I have to get creative when it comes to looking cute and staying warm.
