This year’s 4th of July was relaxed and fun and beautiful. My newly married friends Mary and Brian had us over for a cookout. There was delicious food, rousing games of badminton, sparklers, and fireworks (both at the house and downtown). Adam and I walked towards downtown to see the big show (one of the best in the country). We had an awesome view….my only complaint is that we didn’t have the coordinated music courtesy of the Nashville Symphony.
