Today I enjoyed pottering about the house with the family, celebrating not only midsummer, but Father's Day too.
Today I put my apron on over my pyjamas, turned the radio on and baked a cake.
Today I decorated my cake with rice paper butterflies and made a promise to myself to make a Summer Solstice cake every year from now on.
Today I packed up a speedy picnic and we journeyed into the countryside to enjoy an impromptu al fresco lunch.
Today I loved the way the grasses looked so utterly summery.
Today I loved the babbling sound of the river as I ate my lunch.
Today I celebrated this beautiful midsummers day eating cake and fresh strawberries beside the river with my family and felt blessed beyond words by this life of ours.
"As the sun spirals its longest dance - cleanse us, As nature shows bounty and fertility - bless us. Let all things live with loving intent and to fulfil their truest destiny."
Wishing you all a blessed Summer/Winter Solstice, wherever you are on this gorgeous planet of ours. I hope your day has been filled with happiness.
