There’s the sweetest little house at the end of our property that sits right over the Wilmington river. It’s actually the oldest structure on our property and truth be told, it’s my favorite place to be. The cool breeze comin’ off the water makes our Savannah heat almost bearable. This year Michael and I decided we are going to host a little July 4th holiday dock party out on that tiny deck, right smack in the middle of the day! Most likely the weather is going to be so hot I could spit on the ground and watch it sizzle, so I want to be prepared with plenty of cool drinks and simple foods to snack on. As you may have seen already on my website, I am a little obsessed with pinwheels right now. Just like the way I used to decorate the handlebars of my bicycle, I’m going to decorate my dock house deck with pinwheels for my party. Y’all, if I’ve shared with you nothing less, I hope it would be not to fret any party giving! Look at how a bunch of pinwheels and some simple foods can make anyplace –even a sweet little space like mine seem grand. Happy 4th of July and as always from the bottom of my heart, I thank all that have served and continue to serve our wonderful country and thank you to the families who support them at home.
