Independence Day is . . .
~ a time for Americans to celebrate the birth of our nation. Had our brave forefathers not signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, there's a good chance our country would still be Britain's red-headed stepchild.
~ a day to eat barbecue! At least, that's what my family plans to do . . . if it stops raining long enough for Sean to fire up the grill!
~ a Twilight Zone marathon. Yes, I will be streaming my beloved show from Netflix nearly all day.
~ a day to watch and shoot fireworks. Those bright bursts of light remind me of the "rocket's red glare" in our national anthem. However, thanks to the rain, the city fireworks display will be postponed until the weekend.
~ the day before our anniversary. Eight years ago today, Sean, our families, friends, and I were rehearsing for the upcoming nuptials. We had our rehearsal lunch at Pizza Inn. We were quite an animated party!
