Today marks the solstice.
It was a gray, heavily overcast day. Dark at night. Dark in the day. Well, at least not bright. There was a bit of snow on the ground, but not much. A perfect blend of autumn and winter to mark the solstice.
Much as I would love to see a lot more snow, the scant dusting let some pretty colors show through.
As the days get longer and we move into the frenzy of the holidays, be good to yourself. And get outside!
