Or I long for a store-bought dessert and then am regretful when the preservatives don't settle well and the experience is ruined. Thankfully there's help!

The Paths We Follow

Each year I am grateful as the Winter Solstice arrives, ushering in the slow but steady return of longer days. It adds to the feeling of hope as the preparations for Christmas and the New Year are in their fullness of expectation.
