Happy almost Independence Day, to those who celebrate!

I’ll go first! I am heading to Austin, Texas this evening to visit my two sisters & her husband. My sister bought her very first in Austin about 5 months ago, so I am super excited to see it in person finally! I am also excited to soak up some , over-eat some BBQ [MY FAVE ] and finally catch fireworks! Here in Arizona, for the 3rd row straight we have had such bad droughts & fires I haven’t been able to attend firework shows, so the little girl in me is really excited for this!
