I feel a drag between New Year's Day and Easter, and after July 4th, it feels like the summer is going downhill. Now that I've adopted Christmas in July, I don't get that post-Fourth letdown so much!
I am with you! I love the summer, because there are so many fun things to do with family and friends, and because it starts the second half of the year (in my opinion, the second half is the best half!).
I love July 4th too! I usually watch the Duke movie McLintock and we have folks over for fire works.
And, my daughter almost shares a birthday with you, but she missed it by 2 hours and 15 minutes, arriving at 9:45 on July 3rd!
