Happy Independence Day!

 If it's Independence Day, this must be the Berkeley Place 4th of July parade passing by our house!
Every year on the 4th we grab our coffee and sit on the front lawn to watch the parade go by.  Police on horses, dogs dressed like hot dogs, a non-marching band (they play from a flatbed truck), kids on bikes and being pulled in wagons, old cars decorated with bunting.  And lots of neighbors to chat with.

And every year we decorate our house.  After all, it is on the parade route!
We live on a corner, so we have two sides of the house to decorate.  
And we do a little decorating inside, too.  I especially like the flag hung in the window.

Brian and I certainly have lots to celebrate this year.  We've had two fabulous vacations (though Finland was kind of a working vacation for me), we love our jobs, our house, our neighborhood....We are so fortunate!  And last week, Brian bought a new car.  A Cooper Mini in British Racing Green.  
Best of all, we have each other.  We'll be celebrating our 36 anniversary on July 7th.  Wow!
