Summer Solstice

Rain. Drum Circles. Natural Light Shows (lightning). Earthy Nature Trails. Fairy Wings. Dancing. Shouting. Freedom. ❤

Sorta represents last nights drum circle. The girl even looks like one of the girls dancing from last night!

Last night pretty much rocked. It’s like you could feel the magic. I don’t have pictures because I left my camera at home, since it was raining, but I found some online that I liked. I wish I could describe it with words.

There is something magical about people all coming together, friends and strangers, and celebrating something as simple yet complex as the longest day of the year. There is something magical about wearing fairy wings in public, and nobody giving you funny looks or asking you why. There is something magical about thinking that I am hungry and being offered something to eat (without saying I am hungry) by — no lies — the exact same woman who called me a fairy princess at Winter Solstice. There was something logical and not magical about politely turning her down because I’m a chicken who was raised to believe in Stranger Danger and watched too many Lifetime Movies. HOWEVER– it was still magical. It was magical that I remembered her face. Magical that we both showed up again. If she is at Winter Solstice I might just have to ask her name. Get rid of the whole “stranger” thing, y’know?

I seriously just happened upon this photo on Google, and the little girl is definitely wearing my fairy wings! :O AWESOME!

It was magical that it rained just enough to feel especially earthy and free, but not so much that by the time we were piling in my van we were all still basically dry. Magical.

Do you believe in magic? In a young girl’s heart? … where the music is groovy like an old time movie?

By the way, I want these shoes someday:

The shoes say "Journey is the Destination" all over them, which is just COOL. They are also totally vegan and made without the use of animal products.

Happy Adventures,

      I know! They are so awesome. I can’t wait until I am someday able to get a pair of them. One day I will treat myself. But first I have to focus on the important rather than the wishlist. Hehe.

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm Renée, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
