Sweet Pea and her family are joining the Chili family (plus Bruder) for our first annual Solstice celebration.
There are comfort foods on the menu; pot roast with mashed potatoes and carrots for the carnivores and bow ties in roasted garlic parmesan cream sauce for the veggie-sauruses, and fresh-baked bread for everyone. The table is beautifully set thanks to Punkin Pie. Candles are lit, presents are wrapped, and Solstice gifts of salt and nuts and other sustaining things are in the basket.
I’m very excited to start this new tradition. Solstice has always felt like my holiday, like Christmas and New Year’s all in one day. I’m delighted to find another family that feels this way, and I’m excited to begin this new tradition.
Happy Solstice. May the coming year be marked by peace and compassion.
