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?
