A-Z of Gratitude: J is for June 21

I’m so grateful that we have passed the shortest day of the year. Winter solstice has come and gone, so we are marching toward spring!
Yes, we still have two months of winter, but at least our daylight hours are on the rise.
Living in Tasmania we tend to get cold fingers, toes and noses. We feel a tad caged up for a few months, but there are many things to love about this time of year. We have the majestic, snow capped Mount Wellington to gaze upon from our living room window, and it’s only 30 minutes drive to play in the snow. While the air is crisp outside, we enjoy the streaming sunlight that warms the house.

Meals are hearty and comforting as we dust off the slow cooker, light candles and open a bottle of red wine.
We snuggle under blankets while we read or watch movies together.
Board games and card games make a big comeback.
We enjoy cozy days at home in our track pants or if you’re name is Asher, pajamas all day!
Hot chocolates and marshmallows are enjoyed at the “family cafe.” (aka our dining table)

Winter changes our pace and brings us together.
Cold hands, warm heart.
