Did everyone have a terrific July 4th??
I know, I’ve been MIA, bad blogger! I finally decided that I was desperate enough and it was time to go back to work at the local coffee house I’ve worked at for the past 2 summers. Summer always goes by fast, but this one seems to have picked up some extra speed – it is inconceivable to me that just 2 months ago today I was sitting in my apartment in Florence, planning which of the dozen restaurants we just had to try would be dinner. I believe the word is heartsick.
Anyway, between running around the coffee house, 4th festivities, and my aunt & uncle coming into town (YAY!), I’ve been too tired to so much as look at the computer. No worries, I’m back, and I’ve got a plan!
Because my awesome aunt & uncle are staying with us, I’m hesitant to reveal this superplan – I want to give it all my energy – but don’t worry, I’m not taking the week off! I’ll be playing a little catch-up – whoa, do I have some product reviews for y’all!
On July 3rd, the town where my dad’s yacht club is (um, his “yacht” is a 26 ft. sailboat with a 4 person capacity…but it’s still fun) has fireworks over the water, so the fam and I packed up and hung out on the boat to watch them! We did it last year and it was really fun and chill – SO much more relaxing than trying to go into Boston (I hit my crowd quota this year with Venice, thankyouverymuch). They are some pretty spectacular fireworks for such a small town, too! I, of course, was not without camera in hand. So without further ado…
The Captain & his Mis[s]Understanding.
And that wasn’t even the real show…
I love those sparkly ones!
Kinda looks like the moon is exploding!
The grand finale.
Watching fireworks in a boat = great way to end a day!
