Summer Solstice

Happy Summer Solstice!  

Now it's officially time for lemonade and shades, beaches and road trips.  So why not throw yourself a little party to celebrate?

There is a lot of history behind the solstice, many reasons why people have celebrated over the centuries.  Maybe you're even into the faeries that come out and whatnot.  But for me, I just find that it's a good reason to be happy for the sunshine.  It's a specific day when I can say "Hey, summer--you're awesome."  Even though I live summer all year round, I'll be having a delightful time tonight with a few fizzy drinks, twinkly lights and some grilled veggies.

Try champagne over popsicles!

You'll need a few fun straws for your bubbly drinks

Decorate with flowers and candles--hanging from wherever you can put them!

One should always have a fruit trifle in the summer.

Caprese salad is a perfect addition to any warm weather meal

Mushrooms make an excellent substitute for a meaty burger
