Celebrations are Brighter with some Fire

How was everybody's Independence Days? Since I do happen to be situated in the historical city of Boston, I am privileged by its often spectacular events. Yes, we do have Evacuation Day(except I don't get it off because I live 10 minutes away and not IN the city..ridiculous right?), but I have always enjoyed July 4. In all the years my parents have worked at their business, they have never taken the holiday off until this year! That's a total of 14 absences of barbecues, obnoxious family photos, and hair smelling of sea salt. I have been deprived of the festivities that come with this particular day. So to celebrate this year, my parents and I went to the outlet(my mom knows me too well..)! I purchased this American Apparel skirt for $20, originally $58. Yup, yup folks. I do pride myself in being a bargain hunter. I also pulled an alphabet tee alongside, just because. Oh and please excuse my slight slouch. That I do not take pride in.
I'm going to end with some photos that truly captured the rest of my July 4. I hope that they will bring back good memories for you also.
