"Fireflies in June, Kids sellin lemonade, It's cities and farms, And open arms One nation under God - It's America"

Fourth of July is honest-to-goodness my favorite holiday. I just love it because it instills such a sense of community and camaraderie - for a brief moment during the year, everyone across our country is united in remembrance of how far our ancestors came to bring us to where we stand today. And besides the feel-good commemorative moments that rise during this momentous holiday, the Fourth is of course a great celebration with food, sun and fun!

Although the Fourth in D.C. is breathtaking I'm sure, I decided to head down to VA Beach for the holiday weekend to spend some time with family. As my step-bro (to be) recently moved here, we decided to explore the area a little more and lucked out when we came across the Harbor Fest in Norfolk. I get to enjoy fireworks every night this weekend!

Y'all have a happy & safe Independence Day!
