Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, my friends!

Not only is it America’s birthday, but in my family, we also get to celebrate the birthday of my very independent eight year-old!

I’ll be taking most of the day to spend with family. Right now, though, I’m off to Michael’s (with my 20% off coupon, of course), to purchase some Wilton’s dyes so I can make his baseball-themed birthday cake.

Wishing all my American readers a fun and safe 4th of July!

    Mara, I really enjoy your blog and today I could not resist commenting for the first time… I too have a son who turned 8 today! We live in Chicago, btw. … to think that we gave birth on the same exact day 🙂 4th of Tammuz, right? 🙂

    • Happy birthday to your 8 year-old! Yes, daled Tammuz! (I love that it’s 4th and daled – makes it easy for me to remember his Hebrew birthday!) So glad you commented. You made my night. 🙂

  2. happy b.day to A!
