what are you all doing to celebrate this independence day? stephen's family is coming in town and we're going to run around the city and go to a ball game tomorrow night (america's favorite pastime, right?) and hopefully catch some fireworks. as you may know, i'm a sucker for fireworks...especially sparklers! so whether you're enjoying the boat times, pool time, family time or relaxing on the couch time, i hope you have a splendid and safe holiday weekend.
