Happy Independence Day #366Days Day 212

Happy birthday, America!


The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. It’s always been a time of yummy food and great family togetherness. 

I popped out of bed this morning at 6:30 a.m. excited like Christmas. It’s 8:30, and I’ve made slaw and have brownies in the oven. My nephew, I heard, is in charge of the barbecue sauce this year, and he spent part of yesterday making the secret recipe that none of us girls are allowed to know — except my mom, of course, who buys the ingredients. 

We will drink lemonade and sit outside in the shade like we’ve done all of my life. Family, tradition, and food — sounds like a good way to celebrate America to me. 

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth!
