I hope everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July! I always get a little homesick for Washington, DC around the 4th. Yes, it is usually hot and crowded and there is lots of extra security, but I love the patriotism that prevails. There is also something magical about sitting outside on a warm summer night alongside family, friends, and neighbors, faces all turned toward the sky, watching fireworks. During those times I feel very grounded in a community and connected to others, yet also very humbled and small.
I’m taking the day off to spend with my husband and friends, but will be back next week with a simple craft project and a delicious recipe.
How are you spending the 4th? Do you have any favorite Independence Day traditions? I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
