Happy birthday, America! Our neighborhood had their fireworks over a week ago, so we get to enjoy two shows this year! For our first date, E packed a picnic and took me to a belated Fourth of July fireworks show, so this time of year I tend to be all verklempt, because of my personal history, my country’s history, and my discomfort around pyrotechnics.
NO MATTER! Have a happy, safe, all-limbs-intact Fourth of July!
