Summer Solstice 2019

Summer Solstice--June 21, 2019. The longest day of the year. 
The first official day of summer (though everyone's already out of school, 
soaking up the summer days). 
That point of official slow down, at least mentally, 
because you know you are at maximum daylight hours. 
The pinnacle of the peak of summer daytime hours, 
and the slow descent comes from here. 

This Summer Solstice, spend some time outdoors, making memories. 
Not sure where to start or what to do, try one of these ideas on for size:
  • Get up early to watch the sun rise. 
  • Stay up late to watch the sun settle on the horizon.
  • Catch fireflies.
  • Go for a picnic at dusk.
  • Have a bonfire--with or without marshmallows or S'mores.
  • Sit outside.
  • Toast the sunset with your favorite beverage.
  • Dip your toes in a beach, a stream, a lake, a river.
  • Go for a sunset swim.
  • Meditate.
  • Spend time with love ones on a walk, on a hike, on a blanket under a tree, on your patio, on the water.
  • Enjoy it outdoors.
