Happy Independence Day!

I am looking forward to tomorrow, aren’t you? The smell of the barbeque with roasted vegetables and kabobs. Fresh cut grass at the park. Hot dogs and sticky lemonade after the parade. And the acrid smell of sparklers hovering above my delighted children’s heads. Every year I love the 4th of July more and more. There are the obvious reasons; celebratory activities with my children, the great food, friends and family…but I also think I am becoming so much more appreciative and aware of my country’s privileges and freedoms. I don’t often stop and think about the rights that I so blithely take for granted, or at the very least treat as commonplace.  I am so very grateful to all the men and women who have served our country in the past and present. Happy Independence Day!

P.S. Isn’t that cake just glorious? I’m totally digging the graphic red/white/blue on Pinterest. Follow me if you’d like to see more.
