There’s something so inspiring about the sight of a tree lined street festooned with rows of American flags, the red, white and blue waving proudly against the the sun dabbled lawns. When my town brings out it patriotic charm in the summer, I get that happy feeling, that pride, that feeling of celebration.
Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, I feel as though we just dipped our cautious toes into summer celebrations. Call it a dress rehearsal before the heat waves and popsicles, where we dusted off the grills and dabbled in the pool.
Before you know it, the 4th of July will soon be upon us! I can’t help but feel a little nostalgic around this time – it brings me back to summer picnics at the beach, barbecues with my family, and running around with sparklers as a little girl. And how can I forget the night I met my husband on 4th of July weekend, with Chicago’s fireworks above us, and Buckingham fountain showing off behind us? There will always be something magical about the 4th of July.
