Independence Day

It's the fourth of July all over the world, but in the United States, it's also our Independence Day. I'm taking a holiday this week from Marvelous Middle Grade Monday because I'll be picnicking, reading in the sunshine, and spending time with my husband, kids, in-laws, and dog. Later on, I'll be captivated by fireworks.

With my very unprofessional camera, I snapped this photo last year while ooo-ing and ahh-ing.

Wherever July 4th finds you and whether you're from the USA or not, I hope you have time, freedom, and independence to enjoy what you love today.

Happy Independence Day!


  1. Have fun. I'm hoping to enjoy the day too.

  2. Have fun and enjoy! We saw fireworks over a lake Saturday night, but may go see some again today. :-)

  3. Thanks, Barbara! You too! We watched fireworks last night here.

  4. Trust you all had a lovely day. I'm one (maybe five) steps slow today but need to get in gear. Fireworks over a lake near our house were delightful! I'm very much an ooo-er and ahhh-er.


Comments. Yay! They're almost as good as chocolate. Almost.
