Hi! With the start of a new year, I’ve decided to shake things up a little and change my daily Care Packages around a little. You’ll find a couple of new additions starting today, as well as a new way of presenting the poems shared here. I think the whole thing ends up more user-friendly and fun. I hope you like it!
