I hope all of you had an amazing holiday weekend. surrounded by friends + family. celebrating with food brats on the grill + budweiser american flag cans. or maybe that was just me.
[J] + I traveled three hours east, to spend the weekend with our friends. this is truly a classic case of time flies too quickly. they came to visit us in des moines last summer, and we’ve been talking about our return visit to see them since. we’ve stopped for dinners [on our trips home from chicago], but that’s not the same. we finally got there. and it was so much fun.
there was a
tad lot of flooding as you got closer to the river, but that didn’t stop the baseball stadium from opening it’s doors on the fourth of july. it truly felt like we were on an island. thank goodness for extremely strong flood barriers.
is it ok that [J] + I’s only independence day tradition is to drink budweiser
because of it’s festive holiday cans? I’ll never understand our rhyme or reason, but a tradition is a tradition. and it held strong this year.
what are your fourth of july traditions?
stay tuned: a peek at my bridesmaids attire tomorrow!
