First day of winter.
Though it didn't seem like it here... the temperature was a whopping 84 degrees!
However, that doesn't change the fact that winter has come.
The shortest day of the year . . . The darkest day of the year.
That means that every day after today will longer (and lighter) than the day before.
That means . . .
. . . no more getting up in the dark.
. . . no more driving home in the dark.
. . . more time for evening walks and bike rides.
. . . more time to take nice photos for my blog!
. . . a sunnier outlook on life.
Which makes me happy!
