4th of July planning





The countdown is on...  Two more days until the 4th and I am already looking forward to it! We will be having a few people over - an eclectic group of really fun people who have never met and who, I think, will really like each other.  

I love entertaining, as it really gives us the motivation to get things in order  here on the farm. I love all the projects that are completed and how nice everything looks the day of the party.  I still have a number of things to do though~




~the decorations must be finished~




~the games must be set up~





~the drinks must be made~







~the desserts must be frozen~





~and lastly, the burgers must be grilled!

Thankfully, there are still two days to finish all of these things.  Because today, I am heading to the spa for a recharge/be spoiled day.  I can't begin to tell you how very much I am looking forward to that!!!

Warm hugs,
