Uh oh – Environment Canada says *today* is the solstice according to my little sunrise and sunset calculator! I guess we have a couple of days where the sun pauses in the sky so really, it’s not just one but several of the darkest days of the year.
It’s an oldie today. I think I bought this dress sometime between 1996 and 1998 from a Cotton Ginny store in the Pacific Centre mall in Vancouver. I remember being so enamoured of the pattern. I hardly ever wear it anymore but I can’t bear, for some reason, to let this dress go.
