Happy Fourth of July!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Fourth of July. I am physically exhausted =) Unfortunately, I have to go back to work today but it's a ghost town in the office. Yesterday was so much fun. Started with Red, White and Boom on the 3rd. Since I work downtown now, I have an assigned parking space and it helped tremendously with the parking situation. Did you know Red, White and Boom is the biggest fireworks in the Midwest? There are approximately half a million people participating every year. The kids had a blast. On the Fourth, we invited family and friends over for a cookout. Not going to lie, hosting a large group of people was a lot of work. We decided on crawfish! lol not a surprise at all. Crawfish is in season now and they're so fresh. I'll share the recipe in a later post if you're interested. We grilled, we ate, we chatted, we laughed and we ended the night making s'mores by the fire. Hubby and I stayed up until 1:00 a.m to clean up but we wouldn't trade it for anything. It feels so good to be surrounded by down to earth, amazing people that we're lucky to call friends and family.
