Make the holidays feel warmer with SOL ALPACA

Oh, the weather outside is frightful here in Chicago. It feels like we went from barely fall to the deep depths of winter. Depending on where you live here in Illinois determines the amount of snow you got this last weekend. I got several inches, but further north got up to a foot! If you […]
