Who else got to twirl around with sparklers or morning glories? I remember one year my twin sister singed my bangs when someone (I forget who), decided it was a better idea to have one already light and stuck in the ground to use as a pilot light.

Independence Day is still one of my favorite celebrations. To this day there’s something magical about showing support for your community: the parades, families coming together and of course who can forget the fireworks? We would bring a big ole quilt to spread out on the grass, some snacks and head out early to grab a good spot to watch the fireworks. Some of my favorite memories are of summer nights: eating popsicles to cool off and waiting with anticipation to see what each year’s fireworks display would look like.
