A Patriotic Grace in Small Things

I am 3/4 of the way packed, ready to head out tomorrow for a 5-day weekend (is that still a weekend?) with my sisters and their families. We will enjoy each other's company and celebrate our country's independence. We are rarely all in the same place at the same time so I have been looking forward to this for months!!

4th of July is my favorite holiday. And so, a 4th of July GiST a bit early...

Parades (links to some really great pics of my hometown parade)

2. Picnics

3. Patriotism

4. Pyrotechnics...ok, fine, fireworks, but I'm digging the alliteration.

Happy Independence Day!!
