June 20th was not only my birthday but the longest day of the year marking the Solstice!
The Norse paraded on the solstice day and night, walking around villages with torches in hand to symbolize the sun, while wearing crowns of flowers on their heads. Though @sarahdiedrick, @mandyyyy428 and I did not parade around Portland with torches we did admire the city of #roses by taking in its sunset and enjoying all that Portland has to offer, like soaking pools at the @KennedySchool and petting all the dogs sharing the patio at @revhallelements.
Thank you to everyone who wrote to me, called me and sent well wishes my way. I could not have felt more loved yesterday.
