Keeping it short and simple. I suspect the blogosphere will be rather quiet today and throughout the weekend. I'll be spending the 4th of July weekend with my family close to home. I'm looking forward to burgers, potato salad, and watermelon with my brother's family, and of course, fireworks!
I have many special memories centered around the 4th of July. Spending the day on the Esplanade in Boston with friends, listening to the Boston Pops at dusk, then watching the fireworks over the Charles were amazing (but exhausting) experiences. One of my favorite memories, however, was while traveling home from my honeymoon. Nearly 18 years ago, my hubby and I were flying home and able to view fireworks as tiny colored bursts of light while approaching the airport. Amazing!
A very Happy 4th of July weekend to all my friends in the U.S.A.
What about you? Do you have any special plans for the weekend or any special Independence Day memories?
