Fourth Favorites

How can it possibly almost be the Fourth of July?  Wasn’t I just writing about what to bring and what to wear to a Memorial Day picnic?

The Fourth to me is the essence of summer – abundant sunshine, strappy sundresses and sandals, cold drinks, simple barbecue fare, sparklers, bonfires, family, and friends.  And nothing to do but relax and soak it all in.

Red velvet cupcakes. My 10 year old daughter baked, frosted, and decorated these ALL BY HERSELF today for her summer camp’s picnic. It was her first time baking alone. I forced myself to sit in the next room to avoid micromanaging. SO PROUD!
