Usually on the 4th of July I go all out. Lots of guests. An insane amount of food which I plan for weeks in advance. And I end up slaving over a hot grill all day long.
Not that it’s a bother, I really enjoy it. But this year I simplified things. Just a handful of family members to entertain. A few meats to grill and a couple of side dishes.
Because this year I wanted to sit around and enjoy things for a change of pace.
A quiet simple day. A time to reflect on sacrifice. On those that fought and gave their lives for our freedoms. And for those that carry on with that fight still.
A time to celebrate life and all of the good things we’ve been blessed with.
I hope your 4th was spent with the ones you love. Eating yummy food and enjoying all of the good things that make you truly happy.
