Celebrating Summer Solstice
Marking the seasonal changes has always been important to me, and becoming a mother has only intensified that importance. There is something to be said for letting the rhythm of Mother Earth guide us, to surrender to her cycle, connect more deeply to it, and allow it to create traditions for our family.
This weekend we celebrated summer solstice by welcoming friends into our home. Kids played and adults sprawled on the grass chatting. The big, beautiful sun brewed our herbal tea, a fire was started, gratitude was shared, a potluck was enjoyed, and apples were roasted.
It was a simple way to celebrate, and in many ways, the perfect way to welcome summer.
How was your weekend?
