Happy Solstice ~ Merry Winter

I wish you peace on this longest night of the year.  Our tree is up, and most of the gifts are wrapped.  So many memories of past Christmases as I unpacked things, I couldn't help but shed some tears.  A friend shared a beautiful song that brought both tears and comfort.  If you're struggling with having lost someone this Christmas, it may comfort you as well.

I've never much cared for liquor, but I love this Hot Buttered Rum recipe shared by From Scratch Magazine.  My sister and SIL have requested I bring it to our Christmas gathering, which I'm pleased to do.  I expect we can all use a little something to soothe and take the edge off this year.   If you can use a little of the same, you might want to give it a try.

I am looking forward to the return of the light.  Wishing you a Happy Solstice and a Merry Winter.  Hold your loved ones close this holiday season.
