Description of Photo

Hope all of you who celebrate it had a wonderful Independence Day!  And to everyone else, I hope you had a fantastic Wednesday!  

The past few days have been a little rough for me-- Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of my dad passing away.  I thought my mom and I actually made it through pretty well.  We did a lot of gardening (I was wearing jeans and a baseball cap-- super-weird, I don't know how people deal with wearing pants all the time.  Yay for dresses!), and put a new planter of very pretty flowers at the cemetery.  What a bizarre situation.  Even a year later, a little part of me still expects my dad to somehow come back.  Maybe we never really accept that people we love aren't physically with us anymore.  Or maybe I just never made it past the 'denial' phase.

The evening was surprisingly good, though-- my mom and I stayed home, but when we heard the fireworks, we ran out onto the sidewalk to watch and they were spectacular.  (I was already in my pajamas at that point-- this is the kind of thing that explains why I don't post outfit photos.)  My favorites are the gold sparkly ones-- some of them make lots of little circles, like polka dots, and some of them trail into golden weeping willows.  
What are your favorite fireworks?
