It was a beautiful weekend—surprisingly warm and incandescently bright near the Utah lake shore.

From the page of a secondhand poetry book:

I think I'll make this stranger's advice my overarching resolution for 2012. Simple yet profound words.

Snapshots of Christmas

Christmas felt a little strange without snow, but it was still wonderful.
I especially enjoy Sunday Christmases. Having a church service was extra special and I think every Christmas should have one, no matter the day of the week. Dressing up and singing hymns is the best way to begin celebrating.

"I thought that a fairer era of life was beginning for me, one that was to have its flowers and pleasures, as well as its thorns and toils. My faculties, roused by the change of scene, the new field offered to hope, seemed all astir. I cannot precisely define what they expected, but it was something pleasant: not perhaps that day or that month, but at an indefinite future period."

—Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
