My Favorite Holiday!
What do I love about the 4th of July? I like that it's not cold - cold does have its place but give me a warm (okay, HOT) holiday any time. Heat makes holiday, for me. I love that we're all joining in the same celebration and that many of us have similar memories - family, picnics, watermelon, 'writing' our names with sparklers in the air.
For my family specifically: I love waiting until dusk and driving to the park to watch the fireworks show. I love the explosion of light in the night sky and going for ice cream after because we're all so hot from the show we need to cool down fast. I love the gasps and giggles from bebe as she watches the different fireworks. Nothing is sweeter than watermelon on the 4th and reaching into a cooler filled with ice and popping the top on an ice cold Coca-Cola? That gives me happy sighs all over.
So, on this 4th of July, I'm wishing all of you - even those of you outside the US - a happy, relaxing day. I hope you're spending it with people you love.
