I’m waiting for the day when someone will come up with an idea as brilliant as Harry Potter. I don’t think it will happen for quite some time. Half of my life has been spent waiting on Harry Potter books to be released at midnight and dressing up to go to midnight showings. And it has to be midnight, of course, so you will be the first to know what happens and no one will spoil it for you.
I’ve grown up knowing all the songs from Wicked, but I never looked up the story or read anything about it. I had my own version of what the story was about based on the song lyrics, and it was basically nothing like the actual play. I figured Glinda and Elphaba were friends, but I didn’t know that Elphaba was good the whole time. And I didn’t know there was a love story in it, which made it even better.
As mentioned before, I love fireworks. July is fantastic in Utah because there is not only one firework holiday, but TWO! Yes, we celebrate the coming of the first settlers of Utah with more giant explosions in the sky. And
Fresh food, small festivals.
Singing, dancing, eating, family time.
Warm evenings on blankets of grass.
Watermelon dripping down your chin.
Nights where the air is warm but the ground is cool.
Since we go to Bear Lake with Colton’s family every year, I won’t write a super long post, this will mostly be pictures. This year we rented a nice home from a family who had apparently traveled all over Southeast
Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Why do I love seeing exploding lights in the air and watching colorful floats go by? No idea. I think it’s because the Fourth has always been a time of friends and family for me, so even as the years have passed and people have come in and out of my life, it’s always a positive memory.
