As we approach the winter solstice, we hope you are taking opportunities to slow down and find some wonder in your world. In anticipation of the longest night, the rains have come to the lands you love in Monterey County, reminding us that renewal is on its way.
As the light of day begins to hold on longer, we wish you more time outdoors jumping in puddles, walking among the leaves that are still falling, or just taking a moment to breathe in the crisp winter air. And to show our gratitude for your support, here’s a brief holiday video from all of us to all of you.
