“Since my friend Alicia is originally from Sweden, I thought it would be fun to do a little mid-summer celebration with her – so I filled our picnic basket with our beautiful picnic throw, our enamel plates, some flower crowns for me and the girls, a yummi citrus and ginger cake (gluten free for Alicia!), some sodas and books to read with the girls.”
