The Longest Day
Today marks the beginning of summer, the Summer Solstice, when the sun is at its northermost point in the Northern Hemisphere. It is perhaps my favorite day of the year.
Here in New Hampshire it is as close as we get to a midnight sun with 15 hours and 23 minutes of daylight. I am happily recalling and truly missing the Finnish summer night we experienced last year!
It's bittersweet, knowing that the days will now begin to grow gradually shorter, but nevertheless, there are plenty of long summer days still ahead to enjoy!
