Happy 4th of July! (A little early.)
I *do* like fourth of July — not so much for the fire works, but for that official bright start of summer. You can think of beer and blankets at the fireworks display, I think of front porches, small towns and bunting. Lots of bunting.
my other favorite things about 4th of July (aside from bunting) are:
FIRECRACKER CHOCOLATE! MADE with chocolate, spices, salt, and *pop rocks* it’s a party explosion in your mouth. I can hear the pop rocks popping even with my mouth closed. DH may be disgusted and rolling his eyes but I’m loving it!
Wait…I smell something delicious—ah, it’s
I’m obsessed with the creative possibilities here — and I say pie or cake is an always acceptable alternative to a tart.
Check back later today — I’m adding some 4th of July romances to this post that you won’t want to miss!
