Happy Yule!

This is our second Winter Solstice at the Summer Hillstead. We have started a couple of traditions for celebrating this darkest day, reminding ourselves to lean in to one another as we face the harsh winter. We dine by candlelight then write about what we’d like to cast away from this past year and toss those scrawling into the fireplace.

Our family focused on the theme of holding what we have in gratitude and not dwell on what we don’t have. I like it.

Wishing everyone a warm, cozy, love-filled Yule ♥️

    A most happy Yule to you, also, and your beautiful family of humans and all the creatures you care for! As the days get longer, I will keep in mind your thoughtful outlook on all the life brings to us. May all our dark days turn to light.
