January 2020 Event Guide!

Not sure if this is an insane indication of what the rest of 2020 is going to be like or not, but this year, these last few weeks have been extremely, extremely busy! I feel like usually it takes a little while for the year to get into a full swing and everyone to snap out of holiday vacation mode, but this year. NOPE. 100% 24/7 Attention-requiring, Time-filling, Brain capacity-zapping busy work. Ugh. Good thing I've already signed up for a nap at The Dreamery.


IN THE MEANTIME, if you find yourself with a free moment during these last few weeks of January, check out these cool sustainable events!
