Winter Solstice

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Today is the winter solstice and this is a very significant date in my life. First, today is my 13th wedding anniversary and I am happy to say I am more in love with my husband each day. He is my best friend and my strongest supporter.

This is also the longest night of the year, and that always fills me with hope. The sun starts to get stronger after today, and there is a little more light to enjoy. I do not do new years resolutions but I cannot help but think of all I want to accomplish in the next year when I can feel the light in the world shifting. More light and more warmth means more opportunity to exercise, and to be productive in general. I am thinking of planting dahlias in my flower bed this year and of finally getting to go on bike rides with my family this Spring. I want to loose another 45 pounds this year, and I really believe that I will do this.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Solstice and a happy holiday. I know I will.
