The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays due to its simplicity. There is no planning for months, no shopping for gifts, and no STRESS. For us, it just means relaxing on the lake with family, eating tasty food, and a lot of water sports. Because this holiday usually involves food, I have rounded […]
