4th of July is one of my favorite times of year—picnics, fireworks, sparklers, cold beers. There’s a parade on the 4th in my hometown and, while it’s nothing extraordinary, I always loved it. I haven’t been in years, but I attended or participated in it every year during my childhood until I graduated high school. Even though we’d been out of school for almost a month at that point, the 4th embodied summer and felt like a beginning of sorts; sunny days ahead filled with adventure. Boy, do I miss that nostalgic feeling of naivety and freedom. I’m setting a goal to have a carefree, fun-filled holiday weekend. I hope you’re able to do the same!
There are so. many. sales. happening this weekend. Here are a few that I’ll be perusing.
Loft: 50% off everything sitewide (sales like this one are the best; no limitations or exceptions, or “up to” percents off!)
Rifle Paper Co.: Up to 20% off (definitely taking advantage of this one!)
And here are some other 4th of July ideas as you go into this long weekend.
Cutting fruit into star shapes with cookie cutters? Great idea for a festive fruit salad!
I love fruit, but swapping fruit with chocolate? Sold.
Lovin’ these patriotic outfit ideas. Great alternative to the Old Navy flag tee.
Cocktails by the pool? Ok, if I have to.
If you’re lucky enough to live in one of these cities or are feeling spontaneous and wanna travel, go check out one of America’s best firework displays!
Have a happy, safe, and relaxing 4th of July!
