Red, White, and Blue(berries)

July 4, 2011

How’s that for a patriotic breakfast?! Yum.

Growing up, the 4th was always my favorite holiday. My family had an annual tradition: we would head down to the beach early in the morning (oh, Rhode Island beaches, how I miss you), spend the entire day in the sun and sand, shower in a friend’s cabana, and hang around, noshing on easy summer foods until the sun went down and the fireworks started. By the time we got home, I was deliciously exhausted from a day spent in the sun, sand, and surf— it was always summer perfection at its best.

Although the nearest beach is hours away now that I live in Maryland, and today ended up being a bit on the cloudy side, I still plan on enjoying the day. Instead of swimming, I’ll celebrate my independence by lazily paging through this bad boy:

And then, right before the sun goes down, I’ll go grab this (not-so-bad) boy from the train:

And if we’re lucky, maybe we’ll catch some fireworks : )

Happy Fourth of July, friends!

What’s your favorite way to spend the 4th? Swimming? Eating? Fireworking?

    My favorite magazine ever! We cycled, swam, picnicked in the living room, grilled, and sparkler-ed…oh my, how times have changed! Hope you had a good time!
