Happy 4th of July!




Hello Ladies

When you think of the 4th of July Holiday, what comes to mind? Let’s play a little game of ” Stream of conciousness”. Of the top of your head, what images are conjured up with you think of the 4th. Americana? Hot dogs, apple pie? Swimming pools? Red-white and Blue,Flags? You tell me. I could make this a long post and share my thoughts on America, our freedoms, and what the 4th does mean.

How are you celebrating this day? Enjoying it with family and friends? On some 4ths, we have gone to the Charlotte Symphony to listen to patriotic songs performed with members of the audience joining in and enjoying their wine, picnics and company. We enjoyed it a few years ago, with fireworks to follow.

My shih tzu puppy, Truffles is scared to death of fireworks. She just really doesn’t like loud sounds like thunder, rain bouncing off the window, anything that is very noisy. This year, we thought we might be able celebrate at home, enjoying some wine, good food and possibly seeing them from afar. We like to keep her company! My boy, Gibson, couldn’t care less, whether it is just being oblivious or his little boy self, loud sounds don’t scare him a bit.

So, whatever, the case may be, enjoy your day with your family, and remember what joys and freedoms we have in this country!

Have a great weekend and HAPPY 4th!
