Summer in Minnesota is so special, and the 4th of July weekend has always been my favorite break. Every bud in the garden looks like it is ready to explode into bloom, and the grill beckons. I plan to spend this weekend hosting our daughter and six of her friends (our basement looks like a dorm room).
Wherever you are and whatever your situation, I hope you take this time to enjoy your surroundings, take a walk, read a book, hang out with friends or family, or just put your feet up. Wishing all of you a wonderful long weekend!
