July 4th Long Weekend!

First, I can't begin to tell you how happy I will be to have both of my peeps home from summer camp. 

My daughter came home this past Saturday and we are picking my son up tomorrow!  I know they have had so much fun, but I am so thrilled about having them both home.

Nothing like a mother hen gathering up her chickadees just in time for the 4th of July weekend which, I might add, is one of my all time favorite holidays.  

There is nothing better than celebrating your independence.  

 It also symbolizes for me a "can do" attitude which is essential to success in anything you do.  If you put your mind to it, you can do it.  I love that! 

 In addition to our independence, the 4th of July is high on my list for other reasons . . .  

It's in the summer . . .  

and summer is my favorite time of year.

Who doesn't love red, white and blue in interiors

Or fashion

did I mention interiors?

Even on the table

Plus, I love a laid back approach to a holiday (you just don't get that with most of the other holidays) 

Fireworks are involved which makes me smile.


And, of course, the FOOD!

Here's wishing you and yours a most wonderful July 4th!  M.


  1. I love the 4th too! Warm weather, cook outs, & fireworks. It doesn't get any better than that :)

  2. I love this post! That first picture with the squirrel is so cute! the 4th was my Mom's favorite holiday also....Hope you and your family have a great one.

  3. I'm English - I had to ride in the Sausalito Parade as the enemy!
