Red, White and Blue- Just for You!

One thing that friends and family closest to me know, is that my favorite holiday is Christmas. The second runner-up is definitely Fourth of July. Truth be told it might actually be a close tie. Fourth of July doesn't come with the stress that Christmas can tend to bring---it's seasonal pace is slower --- and it also happens to fall during my birthday week – and my husbands! My favorite place to celebrate is on the shores of Lake Tahoe…yes, red, white and Tahoe blue---something I have enjoyed since childhood. Nothing says “summer” to me more than Fourth of July week at The Lake. In honor of a celebration of Independence Day I am sharing my July 4th Holiday Pinterest board with you. I have visually assembled some inspiration and plan to execute a few of these ideas this upcoming week. I hope you will draw some inspiration here as well for your holiday week. I believe in keeping it simple--with a few Martha Stewart touches thrown in.  May your celebration sparkle- wherever you are, in your favorite Independence Day spot! I have also included some healthy summer recipes (and long time favorites) that I plan on trying this year. Have a wonderful week! Click for: 4th of July ideas!
