It’s all the light.
The long days make all of your winter ideas possible.
All the “what if I try this?” attainable.
The darkness of winter is for comforting stews, sweaters and scarves, pooches warming your feet and letting your mind dream big.
Big for those long days of light to come. The days where even after 10 hours of work you can still get home, romp in the sun with your pups. Tend the garden with your sweetheart and then create delicious meals with food you grow. (o.k. we mainly only have success with potatoes and tomatoes. One of which my husband hates but we keep planting other stuff hoping one day for victory!)
There is also time and light, sweet beautiful natural light, to grab my camera and work on photo projects. For no other reason than it is what I love to do. All those winter thoughts and notions become my works in progress and besides my husband and doggie gang, nothing makes me happier.
Plus I have one very eager little helper.
