Festival Season 2014

unnamed

February means “Pagan Festival Season” at my house, but before the fun can begin there are notes to write and Power Point slides to finish up. It’s both my favorite and least favorite time of year, but I love it regardless, and wouldn’t have it any other way. [Read more...]
