Midsummer Evening On The Water

Midsummer's Eve

Last week we celebrated Midsummer Evening in Denmark. This being our first Midsummer Evening as boat owners, we wanted to head out on the water in the boat to see the bonfires on the beach from the seaside. These are just impressions from an evening on the water that offered a beautiful ever changing sky.

Frida had fallen asleep below, but Ronja was high with energy, so she did a little midsummer dance on the deck.

This past weekend, I have been sewing on a very special dress together with my friend Karen, who designed it. It may not be the same everywhere, but in Denmark as well as many other places, the groom is not to see the bride wearing the wedding dress until the wedding, so this is a secret project. That means even though I’m dying to show you our progress here, I can’t. However, if you are a blog friend, I can give you a guest pass to a secret Flickr album – just let me know here that you want to have a peek. πŸ™‚ I won’t be showing anything here until after August 13th.

    That looks like such a lovely way to spend midsummer. And I would love a peek at your special dress if you can send me the pass πŸ™‚

  2. Astrid says:

    Rohaiser – thanks! And you should have received your pass by now. πŸ™‚

    Jane – Aw, you are sweet – thanks! πŸ˜‰

    Medrie – thank you! And of course you can – it’s on its way! πŸ™‚

    Such beautiful skies! What a great way to spend mid-summer’s evening.
    I have seen some photos, but if there are more, I would love a peek.
