Oh how I love the summer! I especially love the 4th of July! It’s that special holiday that we all get out our American flags, fire up the grill, watch fireworks and most importantly spend time with family. You know I always write about spending time with family, but we have to take advantage of moments like these because we can never go back. So why not enjoy, have fun and get creative!

1.  Plan a picnic – July 4th is the perfect time to plan a picnic. Find a great blanket, pack some food and drinks and plan to lay out, eat, laugh and watch some great fireworks.
