Happy 4th of July
I love fireworks!
I love the quiet anticipation of the first exploding shell.
I love sight of bursting colors across a darkened sky.
I love the gently drift of shadowy smoke as it sinks in the cooling night air.
I love the smell of burnt fireworks which leave your nostrils singed.
I love the wistful feeling of loss when the bright lights fade and we slowly leave for home.
I love the freedom of expression and choice that we have on American soil.
I love the feeling of independence that is our right in the United States.
I hope you feel it too.
The Pre-Game Analysis
The fresh brewed iced tea was prepared and readied for the thirsty...
The vat of macaroni salad was chillin' in the fridge waiting to make it's debut.
Two freshly baked apple pies stood at the sidelines waiting for their call into the game.
And while this food preparation was in play...
This fashion nightmare (or shall I call her a "fashion icon") was roaming our property.
Have a great 4th of July!
