Observant folks may have noticed I skipped right over January events. Not because they’re weren’t any, but because my December and January were so packed I “clean forgot”, as my dad would say. (Clean forgot is different than regular forgetting – feel free to ask me about the subtleties over a cup of coffee.)
Below you’ll find events in NC (most come from the fantastic Our State event calendar) and some pics of recent wanderings – hope you enjoy.
