Weekly Round Up (The 10 Day Edition) – Feb. 11–Feb. 20

Honestly, Friday was a bit of blur so the weekly round-up slipped away from me once again or, as Amber would say, we’re monsters! But to be fair to us, we’re still trying to get a hang of this and we want to be better!

Anyway, here’s every article/story/upcoming event that has been posted to the Facebook group in the past 10 days. Thank you to all that have shared!
