We wanted to start our holiday off right so this morning we jumped into the car and headed to our local farmers market. The town square was full of live music and it was wonderful to see our favorite vendors. It's crazy hot here right now so we didn't linger to listen to the music longer like we sometimes do. But it was still awesome.
We spent the day working on projects and trying to make a dent in our summer to do list. Then after dinner we headed out front for some fireworks. We live in a gorgeous pine tree forest. Think Snow White's cottage. It's really quite magical, but kinda a fire hazard for fireworks. So we just keep it limited to sparklers and pop it's.
After dark our neighbors started setting off their firework show. So we pulled the couch in front of the sliding door in the family room to watch. The fireflies are out in full force and between them and the fireworks, the sky was full of twinkling lights.
We are so blessed to live where we do. Happy Independence Day!
