Having some trouble embracing February? Me, too. I used to sail through winter, bragging how much I LOVED New England, and could never see myself living elsewhere. I’m not so sure about that anymore, but I am trying to make the best of it! Lunch at the Fondue Village for my daughter’s 25th birthday (see below) certainly lifted our spirits. Next, I intended to give inflammation-busting cryotherapy a go, but chickened out and sent Laura instead. She reports back on this list. Maybe barbecue dinner at the new Black Jax in Centerbrook will have you dreaming of lazy summer days. We’ll get through it. Only 45 days ’til spring.
