Happy Independence Day!

I love small town celebrations on the 4th of July. To me they are mindful of the smaller themes of freedom. Home, family, the pursuit of happiness. No less profound than the larger patriotic themes that we celebrate on this day.

Summer seems the perfect time of year for any celebration, no matter where you are.

I remember most the mountain picnics of childhood where the watermelon and beer went into the stream to cool while we played a game of softball in a grassy field.

But these days I would rather stay near the comforts of home.

Certainly easier, and maybe a bit more potential for something decorative. (Which we love!)

Including all the basics of course! (Do you have a favorite recipe for the 4th?) My grandma made the best potato salad.

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day today!


Happy Fourth of July!
