The 4th of July is a fantastic, though often overlooked holiday. Truly. When you are asked, "What's your favorite holiday?" Probably over half of you list Christmas and then Thanksgiving. Some, like myself, name Halloween as supreme holiday, while our more romantic counterparts might prefer Valentine's Day. (ick). A few people might say Easter, or St. Patrick's Day, or New Years. But the Fourth of July has so much to offer.
  1. Picnics + Parades
  2. BBQ + Red/White/Blue
  3. Fireworks + Freedom
  4. Watermelon + Water Sports
  5. Summertime + Sunshine
  6. History + Hot Dogs
So whether you are in Canada (ahem, Kelley) or Europe (ahem, my brother), or fortunately, located in the great USA on this day, I hope you choose to celebrate your history and your nation. I plan to celebrate with fireworks out in the country, and classic 4th cuisine: hotdogs, corn on the cob, watermelon, BBQ, root beer floats, s'mores, and the like. But first, to start off my day, I did make this Red + White + Blue Yogurt Parfait. I think its the perfect, patriotic start to any day.
