Summer on the dock -- dangling feet in the water and sharing secrets with your best friend. ruralgirl: (via Summer & Garden)

This would be fab on my "own summer lake house" here in Finland! Don't have it yet but this makes it easier to picture the view to the lake!

So I talked about a dream vacation home in the mountains, then the beach, oh but then check out this lake view! Dream on sister. Dream on.

I can't help but think of walking through the forest to get to the pond at the summer camp I attended for several years; the path through the forest also had planks over it, although that was more about uneven ground and mud than anything else.

Midsummer party

Freeze the bottles in an empty milk carton after you fill it with water and fruit/flowers.

Midsummer day simply refers to the period of time centered upon the summer solstice, but more often refers to specific European celebrations that accompany the actual solstice, or that take place on a day between June 21 and June 24, and the preceding evening. The exact dates vary between different cultures. Midsummer is especially important in the cultures of Scandinavia and Latvia where it is the most celebrated holiday apart from Christmas.

-The Midsummer festival- This spirited event is based off of the summer solstice in Northern Europe. Sweden, in particular, highlights the June festivities with maypoles, music, and feasts!
