Fourth of July- Oh my gosh, it is almost here. I wonder where I stored all of the paraphernalia for the 4th, flags, banners, red, white, and blue napkins… ? I sent out cute email invitations to the family for a barbecue. I am planning to serve all American favorites, but keep the calories low key, except for the fried chicken. 
In this summer of economic uncertainty and upsetting headlines, I think it is a good idea to enjoy our backyards or pack up the food as a picnic and take it to the park or beach. Enjoy your family and friends.
I dedicate this post to Mitchell’s first year, (and probably the hardest of all) first year of sobriety.
