Happy 4th of July! We have so much to be thankful for, and I am grateful that I get to live in the country that I do!
I prepped and grilled this entire meal one day prior, because the 4th will be plenty busy on its own…and who wants to be prepping all day on a holiday. Plus, I’m working part of the day and Tim has started to prep and paint our house. Considering there will be no fireworks, due to a number of fires here, we don’t feel too bad about not fully indulging in the holiday.
We will, however, be celebrating with an amazing lunch spread, fresh fruit, and refreshing Moscow Mules!!!
