Happy Father's Day to all of you Daddios out there.
We had a great, laid back Father's Day and the girls lavished their dad with hugs, kisses, and handmade cards. My father-in-law, brother-in-law and niece came over for lunch and the weather was beautiful and sunny and it was a gorgeous day spent in good company.
I have to admit, though, I get a little sad on Father's Day as the 3 year anniversary of my dad's passing is coming up in a few weeks. Seeing everyone's posts and photos on Facebook makes it a little hard as well. I am happy to see everyone celebrating their amazing fathers, but it does make me miss mine!
I have come to a very good, peaceful place with it all though, but today is always a little hard.
I was so happy to realize this afternoon that it was also the Summer Solstice!
I love summer and the fact that it's bright and sunny when I wake up and doesn't get dark here until almost 9pm. It's hard to believe I was writing this post 6 months ago!
The girls were in bed early tonight as we had a really busy weekend, so around 730pm, I headed out for a walk around the farm.
The light was so pretty and I wish I had sneaked a doll with me to capture some good glam shots!
After I started walking, I felt a lot better (as I always do.)
Here's the last shot I took as I headed inside around 845pm. Still light out!
I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day and enjoyed the light of the Summer (or Winter depending on where you are) Solstice.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
