The Fourth of July is one of my top holidays... I know, I say that about almost every holiday - but who doesn't like fireworks, yummy hamburgers, and blueberry or peach pie... it's just American! I've spent several past July 4ths in Baltimore, Atlanta, New Orleans, Kentucky, and of course North Africa with BIG celebrations and surrounded by lots of American flags, food, and lots of people.
BUT not this year... This year was spent in our backyard on a picnic blanket with my favorite person. We didn't grill hamburgers and I didn't make a peach pie - it was just simple - we grilled pizzas and then enjoyed the fireworks that were being shot off all around us by our neighbors...
Ahhh...it was pure bliss and a great way to spend the holiday right in the middle of the week!
Happy Fourth of July America!
