Happy 4th of July Y’all!! It is rainy and gloomy here in Kentucky, and has been all day, but I’m sending some Merica’ pride to all my readers around the good ole’ U.S.A. While this weather certainly puts a damper on the festivities and the general holiday spirit, we’ve got our fingers crossed the clouds will part for our evening plans. I will be at Jacob this year for the 4th, celebrating with our friends and the rest of their guests. They’ll be eating BBQ, while I will be eating something vegan, playing corn hole and setting off fireworks.
This year for the 4th I am wearing an embroidered tunic dress by Joy Joy, some Jack Rogers Georgica Sandals, gold hoops and my lucky horse shoe necklace while dancing with sparklers, and lusting over my homemade non-vegan sugar cookies that I just wish I could have.
The 4th has always been a holiday heavily celebrated by my family and friends, and is one that has a slew of great memories surrounding it. Growing up my dad was in charge of the 4th of July festival in Crescent Hill and my grandfather was in charge of the antique car parade that stretched down Frankfort Ave, ending at the festival my dad organized. I would ride in an antique car or firetruck and throw candy to the spectators every year, participate in the annual watermelon eating contest, play the cake booth until I had at least three cakes to take home, join in on a round of putt putt, select a new hair bow at one of the many art booths apart of the festival, and finally land on a blanket where I would watch a grand firework show with my entire extended family. I have always loved the 4th of July and while the daily celebrations have changed over the years it is still one of my favorite holidays.
