I love watching fireworks twinkle in the sky and I love listening to the crinkling sound in the air. For best friend (bff J) fireworks remind her of her birthday. Being born on the Fourth of July can be fun. The whole country seems to be celebrating you every year. As a little girl she got to believe that everyone set off fireworks just for her special day (oh the day dreams and whimsical ideas of a child). Then of course she grew up and learned that her special day was also a special day for the whole country and unfortunately people weren’t celebrating just because a wonderful girl was born.
This year we were able to enjoy the holiday/Laurel’s birthday for the first time in many years with each other. As adults it is so much harder to get together with friends who live many states away. I was fortunate to be able to spend this time with her. We were able to watch the day through the eyes of my little one. Little B is just amazed by her world. The little things are so enjoyable. Corn on the cob is a feast! Playing with people she never gets to see is pure joy. It was a great Fourth/birthday celebration!
