I love the 4th of July. I love seeing the American people come together to celebrate the birth of our great nation. This year for the 4th I was in California with The Man and Little Man, and we were invited to a small town block party. Talk about feeling like you’ve stepped back in time! It was truly amazing to see neighbors come together to laugh, talk, and celebrate – back home on the East Coast I don’t even know what my neighbors look like, much less what their names are or if they have kids or pets or grandkids. So, as I recover from a day of fun, food, music, fireworks and way too much sun (ok, so technically I’ve had two days to recover, but we’ll just let that one slide), I decided to share a couple of my favorite pics from the day. Hope y’all had a fabulous fourth!
