Happy Winter Solstice!

As we officially enter the Winter season and move into longer, brighter days from here on out, many of us celebrate the changing light and mood.

I love to have a quiet dinner with my loved ones and talk about the year past – and make plans for the coming year. What do you do to recognize the solstice?
