DREAMY. Midsummer is by far my favorite holiday, nothing really beats spending time outside with the people you love when Sweden is at its most beautiful! One sweet, old Midsummer tradition that I remember loving when I was younger is to pick a bouquet of seven different flowers that you put under your pillow before going to bed in hopes of dreaming about the person you will marry.
So, late in the evening we headed out to a meadow in search for blossoms and ended up getting about one million mosquito bites while walking in the high grass. As we strolled home with our flowers in the bright night, the sky opened up and a light summer rain started to fall over us. While the birds took cover under the trees, a majestic deer suddenly appeared from the forrest, and I stopped and closed my eyes to take in this beautiful moment to it’s fullest.
In the old days, Midsummer was believed to be one of the times of the year when magic was strongest. I still believe it is.
