Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays! I have fond childhood memories of getting a day off from camp, have a cookout in the backyard, family coming to visit from all over the place and of course watching the fireworks at The Sands in Port Royal, South Carolina where I grew up.
This will be my first 4th living in California and i'm excited to see what treats the day bring. Tweet me some of your most patriotic photos or pix of your favorite summer traditions using the hashtag #TeamSouthernBelles and I'll share some of them here and on the TeamSouthernBelles Facebook page.
Enjoy your long weekend!
