The 4th of July holds special meaning to me. There are parades, picnics, fireworks, and freedom to celebrate. Every year since I can remember, my parents always planned my Birthday festivities to celebrate on the 4th of July and it seems to have been carried through into my adult life. My Birthday is actually on the 6th but I certainly don't mind celebrating a couple days early. Perhaps that is why I have such a love for Patriotic decor, and why my kitchen is bursting with 4th of July fever year round. This was the inspiration for my newest treasury. It will be active until Wednesday at 12:24 PM.
