Happy 4th of July. I know I'm in a beautiful location for the summer, but I have to admit that I'm missing our extended family. We've always celebrated the holiday together, going to a local parade, followed by a family barbecue in my aunt's back yard or down by the river, ending with a family firework show. Here in Hawaii it's just the two of us (mom and me). We're going to sleep in, head to the beach & eat our lunch there, and then drive later that night to the North Shore for a free fireworks show. I know! It sounds so ideal, and yet I'm really missing family this year.
So here's the thing. It really will be a relaxing, delightful day, but I'd like to butt in on your lives and hear what you're doing today! Are you going to be with family today (or were you), and are you glad to be? :) Let me know what you're doing this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July!
