Its hard to believe winter solstice is here. This day always makes me a little sad because it feels like we will be climbing our way out of winter from this point on. The days will be getting longer tomorrow and in a little over 4 months there will be continuous twilight lighting up the northern horizon. Not long after that it will be light all night long and summer will be here. I will definitely make the most of these dark cozy days before they are gone...

me depressed that we are gaining light and headed out of winter
