The Fourth of July, the Fourth of July… I was born in July, and Independence Day, coming as it does in the middle of such a drought of holidays, was always a favorite with me. On the last Fourth of July, Sparks and I had our third date, and I told him that he’d be married in a year (because he’s such a general all-around great guy, it seemed obvious to me). Rather wonderfully, this coming Fourth of July, he is going to marry me. Little wonder I like the holiday so much.
The sugar stars now available in my Etsy shop come in a red-white-and-blue patriotic variety. I thought that, to celebrate the new shop and to make me feel encouraged that it will eventually be July, I’d do a giveaway.
So here’s the deal: leave a comment telling me about a Glorious Fourth that stands out in your mind. Did you see your first fireworks? Did you miss them? Did you have a first kiss, a first love, a first child? Did the fireflies blink and the long grass swish in the breeze? Did you have a picnic? Tell me about it, and be sure to leave your email address too.
Entries close at noon on April 21 (one week from now), and I’ll announce my favorite three stories soon after. These three winners will receive one box of twenty-four patriotic sugar stars. Sound nice?
