AT HOME IN HUMBOLDT
WEEKLY EVENTS NEWSLETTER
At Home In Humboldt burrowed away for a little Winter rest, but we are up from our slumber and back in action with your favorite local events newsletter.
There have been some changes to our layout and we want to make sure that you don’t miss a beat so be sure to read through the whole newsletter this week!
The North Coast has shown up in true fashion this Season, with more than our share of brisk foggy mornings and rainy days. Cozy family gatherings and fall festivities are but mere precious memories as we take on a New Year.
With it, we are greeted by an occasional peek from the sun and even few more moments of daylight. At Home In Humboldt has come out from hibernation !
