Our Nations Birthday


Parades, BBQ's, loved ones, sunshine, and fireworks.

My favorite things about the 4th of July.

As a kid this was always one of my favorite holidays.

We used to run around outside barefoot with popsicles in our hands not caring how sticky we got.

As night time approached the excitement intensified.

The moment the sun started to set we would be yelling at our parents to get the boxes of fireworks out of the garage. Sparklers would be handed out and all the boys would fight over who got to light the next cone out of the box.

I still love this holiday. My children have the exact same reaction I did.

This makes me smile and reminds me, again, that some of the best things in life truly are simple pleasures.

I hope you are enjoying your day.

Here's a little diddy I will leave you with. If you want you can pretend I am singing it to you in my very off key yet enthusiastic voice. Enjoy!

I love fireworks too. San Diego has some awesome ones which we'll be watching on the bay tonight! :)

Enjoy your day.

Love, Michelle
