We're passing out of Fall, and into the Winter Solstice on Saturday night. It's the longest night of the year, but it also means the sun is returning, and the days will be longer. It's a time when our ancient ancestors might have performed cleansing rituals and danced around a yule log. Wow! That was exactly my plan for Saturday!
Listen, it's going to be a crazy weekend...this last before Christmas, so take a deep breath, and enjoy every minute! ~Melissa
