I hope everyone had a wonderful, beautiful, spectacular holiday weekend!

Being new to a city makes it hard to have set plans on the first holiday here, or to know where to celebrate, but we found a place to catch some fireworks last night(which was my only requirement). Last year we watched them on the third(why do most places do it on the third?) and had nothing to do on the 4th, which made the whole holiday feel a bit like a bust. There’s just something about celebrating it day of that makes it special, I just can’t celebrate the day before anymore. So yesterday we went shopping at ikea, started setting up our office and then headed over to watch the fireworks with Whit and some of her friends.

There were sparklers and fireworks.

I was a very happy girl.

How do you celebrate the 4th? Any fun traditions? Next year I claimed that we’d be in our newly bought house, barbecuing with friends.
