Being what I call solar-powered – loving and needing many hours of light + sunshine! – it makes sense that the winter solstice has been celebrated since thousands of years ago. Although it doesn’t feel like the longest day was all that long ago and we fully enjoyed the beautiful fall weather, it’s a challenge on these dark mornings to energetically get out of bed and then not feel like it must be time to tuck in right after dinner. It’s easy to celebrate at the thought of the days beginning to slowly lengthen again!
There was thick frost yesterday that lingered. Passing by these trees on a road that is only taken when going to visit to a dear friend, they were beautifully frosty in the afternoon sunshine!
Cheers to the longest night and the sun’s steady climb to the long, warm days of summer!!
