It’s Thursday – woo!
Today will certainly be a LOT warmer in Boston (and other parts of Massachusetts), so get outside and soak in some Vitamin D – it is good for you, especially in the winter.
As always, make sure to smile, be kind, and laugh – laughing is also good for you, too – and enjoy our first ‘throwback Thursday’ Daily Noontime!
