Adventures in Life: Winter Jam 2013

Daniel and I got to do something super fun this weekend.

Did you get to do anything fun and exciting this weekend?

  1. How fun! I have been hearing adverts for Winter Jam for several weeks and we would love to attend when it comes to Champaign. Love, love love wbgl radio station. That Matthew West song is something else, isn't it? I would love to know the story behind it. Have a great day!
