#summersantagoespostal #summersolstice

Ice cream cone wrapping paper on these gifts-it‘s summer!
I was away on the 21st so could not open this box from @Kdgordon88 . Debra, I was overwhelmed last night when unwrapping each gift-so evident that you “ got me”. So incredibly generous! Perfect books, bookmark, coffee mug, stickers, chocolate-thank you for all the time & thought you put into my gifts! I have begun reading the tagged book already. ❤️

Kdgordon88 You are most welcome. I had a blast shopping for you. Have a great summer! 3w
kspenmoll @Kdgordon88 Enjoy your summer too! Just finished one if your book gifts, Beauty in the Broken Places. 💕 3w

Chrissyreadit @WanderingBookaneer I loved it- we live with my mom too and she said I need to do that too! It was so much fun to see your thoughts as I opened. 4w

"I have only to break into the tightness of a strawberry, and I see summer — its dust and lowering skies." - Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eyes

Today marks the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and the official start of summer. This day brings forth images of fairy rings, a basket brimming with wildflowers, afternoon picnics, evening bonfires, and a whiff of magic.

Any fun plans on this first (official) day of summer?

Happy Summer Solstice to everyone in the Northern hemisphere! 🌞🌼
Happy Winter Solstice to those in the Southern Hemisphere! ⭐️❄️
I had to do my solstice activities at sunrise today because my building has scheduled window washers (inside apartment) for today. I just finished baking Summer Solstice honey cakes. I‘m waiting for them to cool to remove them from the mold. I hope they turn out alright. 🐝

Bklover I would be most happy to taste one for you and let you know how they‘ve turned out!! Beautiful photo, by the way. Happy Summer Solstice to you! 1mo

Arrived yesterday ! Update on my package: the books have been shipped directly from Amazon (in two shipments I think) and are expected to arrive the 14th. I'm struggling with filling out the customs form to ship my other items: does anyone know do I have to fill out separate customs forms for more than 4 items? I feel like an idiot. #SummetSantaGoesPostal @Judybskt
