Red, White and Blue…

July is my favorite month of the year… bursting with celebrations of birthdays and anniversaries. This year we started early with my middle sisters special destination birthday celebration in NYC last week. I am still recovering from all the excitement and late nights (or shall I say weee morning hours), fabulous restaurants and rooftops, delectable shopping and above all, the LOVE we are all blessed to share. There is nothing like ‘sisters’ and we are three…

We made it back from the ‘big apple’ just in time for the long weekend casual BBQ’s and relaxation– a dramatic change of pace. The backdrop for my 4thof July presentation is my ‘inaugural vegetable patch’ at the back of my yard. Gardening is by no means new to me, but this is my first attempt at growing organic veggies and herbs! There is nothing quite like strolling to the back to pluck some fresh basil, mint, oregano or cilantro…chutney’s and pestos have reached a whole new level of deliciousness!

UPDATE at 11:30pm:
I must share my evening in the city with all of you…we were at the Trump Tower Chicago terrace and this was our magnificent view tonight…
I LOVE MY HOMETOWN CHICAGO and our skyline…

The Wrigley Building adorned in red lights to commemorate Independence Day
Our spectacular view of the Navy Pier firecrackers from the Trump Tower terrace, it doesn’t get more perfect than this…

It was a perfect day in every way…
Goodnight…
