Hi friends!

Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday. I had a long day away from my computer and didn’t have the energy to post by the time I got home. As many of you know, this Friday is the 4th of July, aka American Independence Day (btw – happy 1st of July to all the Canadians out there!). Those who know me know that I don’t really feel all that American (despite being born here and living here for the past 4 years…whoops). And given the results from SCOTUS yesterday, I’m even less keen to call myself an American (ahem). Regardless, I fully support any opportunity to gather with friends, cook yummy food, and celebrate summer!

This Friday, my sister and I are hosting a 4th of July party at her place, and we are so excited! In preparation for the shindig, my overzealous brain has been planning up a storm. Gathered below is the short version of my inspiration for the fête. Feel free to peruse in case you need any ideas/inspiration for your 4th!
