Lovey and I celebrated the 4th by ourselves this year. We still made it festive despite not having a big celebration planned with friends and family.
We decorated the front porch with buntings
Put out our flag
Made a little flower arrangement
And brought out the tea towels mother gave us.
We prepared food and ate like we were planning for a crowd to come over.
We feasted on ribs, North Carolina-style pulled pork with NC vinegar sauce, grilled corn on the cob, roasted potatoes, watermelon, peach ice cream, watermelon, watermelon cocktails, and more watermelon.
We watched A Capitol Fourth and the New York City fireworks on TV.
and ended the evening with a lot of fireworks in the neighborhood. A very good day. Happy Birthday America!!
