In a last minute turn of events, I spent this 4th of July with family on Whidbey Island! After a rough, hectic, draining week, it was perfect weather for reading on the deck, eating hot dogs, watching baseball games and chatting. I honestly didn’t have much energy for anything else! It was such a cool experience to spend the holiday in a beach house, because each house in the cove had their own fireworks going. It was basically a 2 1/2 hour private fireworks show for all of us!
