Hey Loves! F & J here!
Yesterday was one of our favorite holidays of the year! The Fourth of July, also known as America's Independence Day. We have so many traditions that keep us busy throughout the day, that include being the parade, a GIANT BBQ party, and of course a firework show to finish the perfect night. Time has literally been flying by, we only realized that the fourth was coming up just a few days before. We love to get in spirit of the holiday so we had to think of some quick and easy things we could do to show our American Pride.
First we made a totally adorable snack that can be used through out the summer. We made our own popsicles using Sprite, and we added raspberries and blueberries to get the patriotic feel, they were a big hit with the crowd. Super refreshing, and pretty cute if we do say so ourselves.
The next thing we did was a bit more time consuming but so worth it. It left quite the impression. We decided to bake a cake. As you can see its not as simple as it could've been but we needed something spectacular for the fourth. We always say, "Go BIG or Go Home" after all this is 'murica right?!
We also got quite a few sparklers that we used to light up the night, we twirled and danced for hours with the people we love, it was quite unforgettable!
If you don't live in the USA, we both feel strongly that you should visit one year to see how spirited and lively this is holiday is celebrated. Everyone is celebrating the same thing, and there is just good vibes all around.
One of our favorite things is going down to the lake because you can see all the fireworks going off all over the skyline, it's truly magnificent.
