Happy Fourth of July! We watched fireworks on Long Island Sound last night from a favorite spot of ours at our beach club in Rye. This morning, we were invited to join an old-fashioned family parade at a beautiful neighborhood down by the water in Greenwich — and this evening, we are preparing for a cozy family BBQ with a few close friends. This particular weekend has a special place in my heart. I was married in Boston July 6 of 2002 and took advantage of having a holiday weekend wedding and packed it with parties and fireworks. It’s a weekend I’ll always remember. I love the American flag and decorating the house with it makes this weekend that much more fun! Here are a few photos from my house today.
Nothing says summer more than homemade whipped cream! I just made a bowl of it and made some simple strawberry and blueberry bowls for our guests. Yum! Enjoy the fourth with your families! ~Melissa Hawks
