A successful married life requires falling in love many times, but always with the same person.

Today was the winter solstice and the first day of winter in the Northern Hemisphere. It's all due to Earth's tilt, which ensures that the shortest day of every year falls around December 21.

Now the house is quietening. Toes are warming by the fire. Rest. Recalling the day. This solstice. 

And another solstice, a first day of winter twenty-four years ago. Fire blazes. And the love story continues. Celebrating our marriage.

Time for thanks. 

Adding to the list.

599. falling asleep and waking next to the man I married twenty-four years ago.
