The girl knows no bounds. I shipped her off to her Daddy’s like this today:
I’m preppy, a bit more conservative…not nearly as well accessorized. This girl pulls it all together in a flashy, glam, trendy way. It’s nice to see that most of my tomboy-ness did not wear off. She’s the perfect mix. She’s going to fireworks tonight with her Dad’s family (it’s his weekend darn it), and we took her via boat to see some last night. Sitting on the front of the boat, talking about well, really nothing at all, I got to thinking how our traditions change depending on who we are with. With my new husband, we take his sister and her husband and our two lovely nieces out on the boat tonight, along with his parents, to watch fireworks. That’s obviously a new one. B and I have always celebrated on our own or at a BBQ with my parents before now. Divorce changed our normal routine of going to the parades and family things all together.
What are your 4th of July traditions? Have they changed over time?
I will never change our Christmas ones. For some reason those seem much more concrete.
