It's the shortest day of the year, and the first day of winter.
But on the brighter side, all the days are getting longer after this, and it's the birthday of my wonderful wife, Emily.
|She has an animal attraction.|
It's been a rough year for Emily, and she deserves more than my usual lame and last-minute acknowledgements of special dates. Just the same, I try to make her aware every day that I love her more than chocolate. That's a big deal for me. I really love chocolate.
And I love you, Emily. Just as the days got brighter after you were born, my life got brighter after we met.
