So I found myself, that 4th of July, on a small boat in the California Delta, learning to water ski with a new beau. Indeed, I was literally trying to keep my head above water! We drank beers on the shores and cruised the waterways all day long, then sat in the water and watched the fireworks show above us. It was one of the two times in my life that I wore a bikini in public. (Aside: isn't youth wasted on the young? If I had that figure now, I'd be in a bikini all summer long!) I came home with a colossal sunburn, but I don't remember the pain -- just the joy of being young and healed from my heartache.
I must say, though, that the best of all Independence Days are those since having a little one to thrill with fireworks!
On the actual day, we'll do a cookout which always includes having the kids make the "flag cake"!
It does my heart so good to see her! We will have a blast! What are you doing this weekend? Whatever it is, I wish you a fun, safe Independence Day!
Don't forget: it's the last week to join me in celebrating my 300 followers/600 posts Celebration giveaway!
