30 Jun Yankee Doodle!
I LOVE me some Fourth of July!! Yes, I am a yankee doodle and this holiday makes me feel happy & patriotic!
Maybe it’s the berry-flag-cakes. Cooking isn’t my thing. I just love them / those who make them for me.
Perhaps it was growing up Nation’s Capital. The White House and all the iconic memorials, especially Iwo Jima. I remember one 4th (involving a cold chicken and brownies picnic yum!) with spectacular views of the fireworks from this spot. It’s actually in Arlington, along the Virginia side of the Potomac and everyone should spend a 4th of July there once!
Maybe it was the summer our friends kept a boat downtown in Chicago. Boat people love the 4th!! Do you think this lady thought it odd I was taking pictures of her boat flags?? It doesn’t get more festive than this.
Perhaps it’s my flag envy. I don’t own a flag to put out and every year say I am going to buy one. My current crush is actually over owning a SWAG. Abe Lincoln here I come. This one is by Grand in Road ($39.) Maybe after the holiday it will be on sale??
And finally this is holiday now has extra special meaning because it’s the weekend that two years ago I picked up Trooper (the rescue daschund!) We were both a little suspect of each other at first but now it is pure.straight.up obsession…for the both of us.
