My all-time favorite thing to do as a kid was to lay on my back and “ooh and ahh” as I watched the fireworks.

Back then I was lucky enough to be able to climb out my bedroom window and watch them from the roof, which honestly sounds terrifying now!

Summertime was always my favorite time of year with backyard BBQs, family picnics, lazy days at the local swimming pool and of course, FIREWORKS!

The 4th of July is just around the corner and it’s time to spice up your home with some patriotic decor! The holidays are the perfect time to get together as a family and create something all your own.
