Happy Independence Day!


I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE fireworks! They’re right up there with steel roller coasters, firecracker maki from RuSan’s, and riding waves in the ocean on a hot day. Add in a day off work, good food, and some of my favorite people and it’s a recipe for a great day. I hope your 4th of July celebration is wonderful!

(Picture above is from Nashville’s 2010 incredible downtown firework display. It’s been rated among the top fireworks shows in the country and I believe it. The long (45 minute?) display is timed with music, lower fireworks that reflect off the Cumberland River, and huge, high-up fireworks that can be seen for miles. One year we watched the top 1/3 of the show from our neighborhood, 4 miles from downtown.)
