I can’t believe we only have one month to 2021! We all have been experiencing a very different life in this year. Finally it seems that it’s going to be better sometime next year. It won’t be soon as we would like to be but it is a relief. Although we’ve been seeing the spike of the virus case so please be safe. As I wrote last week, I still have 2021 calendar on sale. If you are interested, please check “2021 Calendar” page!
