In a few days the Winter Solstice will arrive bringing with it the shortest day of the year and the official start of winter. If you are anywhere near where we are then your day probably starts and ends in the dark right now. The perpetual darkness, cold, and damp (we're in Seattle so... it's raining) can really get to us and bring us down during this otherwise festive season. Fortunately, we have a few allies in our corner. The beautiful candles from Chandler Candle and the Wine Wands from Pure Wine really help us out.
