Happy 4th of July!

 One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore!

~Oliver Wendell Holmes~

Good morning! Happy 4th of July! 

Do you have some wonderful plans? A parade, a concert, a trip to the beach, some tasty treats at a barbecue?

We are off to see the smiling and proud faces of the little ones who have decorated their bikes and wagons, going on a leisurely boat ride(weather permitting) and then going to a barbeque where I will be eating some of my favorite foods.  

We will be skipping the local fireworks in favor of our favorite celebration, A Capitol 4th on PBS. If it is going to be raining in your area I highly recommend it, great music, fabulous stories and wonderful fireworks.

I hope that have a beautiful day spent with family and friends. Be safe and enjoy!

P.S: If you need a delicious treat to take to a party or would just like for yourself, these Hershey's Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Frosting are delicious! You can find them at Once Upon A Chocolate Life.


  1. Enjoy, dear Elizabeth!!!

  2. Happy Fourth of July Elizabeth! I hope you enjoy whatever you do! Dylan dog actually likes watching fireworks and so far we have the perfect day for them...lets hope it stays that way after all of our rain.


  3. A happy Fourth of July to our American neighbours!

    The ambassador up here does tend to have a gathering to mark the day, as I recall.

  4. Happy Fourth! I need those chocolate cupcakes!
