Celebrate Summer

Happy summer beautiful people! 

It is now officially the season of sunshine and sunscreen, bbq's and cold beer, bathing suits and bare feet, bonfires and marshmallows, star gazing and skinny dipping, grape popsicles and chasing fireflies. The warm weather and extended daylight hours are an open invitation to enjoy the bounty of mother nature in all her glory.

Today is also the summer solstice...the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere.  There are many cultures which celebrate today with festivals and parties across the globe, dedicated to the regenerative and life-giving powers of the sun. They wish to honour and celebrate abundance, light, fertility and the beauty of nature.

Summer is traditionally the season representing fertility and ovulation (spring is pre-ovulatory, autumn is premenstrual and winter is menstrual).  You just need to look around you now and witness the gardens in full bloom to understand why. 

According to some, today marks the beginning of a highly fertile period and we should  expect a baby boom in 9 months. 

To help celebrate this golden season, please enjoy this 'Summer Grooves' playlist, chock full of summertime songs to light you up.
