inspired by the 4th

Our day of independence… better know as the ‘get together with your friends for a bbq, outdoor games, boating and some tasty cocktails’ day;). This year, I’ll celebrate by hanging out at the lake with my sisters, nieces, nephews, brother-in-law and J. We’ll be grilling and we’ll certainly be watching the fireworks. This will be my first 4th as a Maine resident in years. I was here last year, and got a peek at the fireworks in Casco, but this year, I’m back for the fireworks of my youth. Nothing beats watching them from your dock, colors reflecting across the lake in front of you. Can you hear a little ‘yay’ from me?;) I may even celebrate the moment by wearing a bit of red, white or blue.

It’s a bit late for a 4th of July shopping spree, but I still couldn’t help putting together a few things inspired by this lovely holiday weekend. If you’re ambitious, maybe you’ll one-up me and grab one of these for yourself before Sunday!
