A perfect summer day …

We had a great 4th of July. We have had some super fun Independence Day celebrations in the past, but yesterday was one of the best I have ever known. Then … I got questioned about it.

Hmmmmm.

I’ll be honest, I am that person who can show up virtually anywhere, have fun and leave with at least one new friend. My closest friends and family can attest to this. It’s just how I roll.

Despite a change in our typical 4th of July plans, it all went without incident. We usually have a house party first then go to the park in the evening for fireworks. This year, after our neighborhood brunch, we packed up and headed to the park where we had secured a spot earlier in the morning. We stayed there for the rest of the day hanging out with family and friends, eating, relaxing and enjoying our day. It was so easy going. Things just went right. Life, and us in it, fit. I was surrounded by the people I love most, sitting in beautiful weather, celebrating our great country. Does it get much better than this? 

Perhaps I’m a simple woman. Life doesn’t need to be extravagant for me to be happy. Sure I love the details of party planning. It’s my thing. To me, it adds to my enjoyment, it doesn’t stress me out. Perhaps my attention to detail and amenability to change are too much for some folks to grasp. May “simple” doesn’t make everyone one happy. For me, a good life is directly related to the experiences I have. And I am thankful that I find it pretty easy to have a great time and connect with people. Maybe that’s not enough for some people. But it is … for me.

Well, I hope you all have a perfect summer day!!!

Finishing touches …

Today I’ve been attending to all the little details for our 4th of July party tomorrow. I added bows, secured pinwheels, made sure the kids’ fun jar is overflowing with goodies, and did tons of other things to make sure our party is that much more fun and festive. I seriously love this stuff!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you add the finishing touches!!!
