Hello sweeties & hello summer! Have you already celebrated the new season? We just did this last Thursday night at Sant Joan, a catalan tradition that celebrates the arrival of summer with fireworks and campfires. Do you remember from two years ago that we usually spent it shut in because I am super afraid of fireworks? Well, this changed a little this year because we had a lovely & fun time playing with sparklers. You might say baby steps, but still a huge leap for me!
Since Elena and Eugeni have an amazing adventure ahead with them moving for a year to Chile in a few days (eeep! exciting!), she had the best of ideas making it a date to celebrate Sant Joan together with a farewell dinner. We had the greatest time and laughed so much with the sparklers never lighting up, not even using 4 matches at the same time! ha! We are definitely going to miss these two, but I’m looking forward to the things they will show us from Chile & the experience they will live.
Do you have a similar celebration for summer? Have you ever been in Barcelona during a 23rd of June? Do you like to light fireworks? Which reminds me something that is coming very soon… happy early 4th of July!
