Today is the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere. It occurred at 8:54am PDT, to be exact! It’s the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, which begs to be marked in some special way, doesn’t it? You could:
- Eat some strawberries! June’s full moon is known as the strawberry full moon, and in Sweden they would eat the first strawberries of the season to mark the first day of summer
- Head to the beach, a lake or just your backyard or roof to watch the sunset! You can find sunset times for your location at the Farmer’s Almanac.
- Find some great summer reading material. Two of my favorite beach read authors are Elin Hilderbrand and Carl Hiaasen
- Make a big blender full of margaritas and celebrate!
I’ll be doing all of the above 🙂 But whatever you do, try to mark the day in some special way!

I moved and set my sundial, made sun tea, and dipped my toes in the creek!
