A very happy 3rd

 We celebrated the 4th of July on the 3rd.
My cupcakes were a huge hit.
The cute toppers came from my mom in a festive 4th of July package.
She's awesome like that.

The wild party crowd.
J + M, Amber, LaVon + Rafael
humid + muggy + gross days equal my hair in a knot on top of my head

The patriotic spirit could not be contained.

Here, I discuss something very important.
Probably how thankful I am for the seat directly in front of the fan.

LaVon is either doing some patriotic interpretive dance moves or
she's telling Rafael she's over the camera.
I tend to like the former option, but truth be told, it was the latter.

Rafael made a summer concoction that was refreshing & oh so tasty.
We are greatful for the way our friends enrich our lives & we love that they are always game
for a good celebration.
We didn't even get to play Catch Phrase the conversations were just so good...
apparently we discussed more than my love of fans & other forms of air conditioning.

It was a pretty sweet 3rd of July after all.

good communication is as stimulating as black coffee,

and just as hard to sleep after.
