We’re only a few days away from one of my favorite holidays, 4th of July! When Drew and I started dating, I enjoyed his family’s annual 4th of July party in Florida and looked forward to it every year after. So many wonderful memories! But I’d have to say, the best 4th of July celebration I’ve ever experienced was the one I spent in the hospital, with our one day old baby Andrew in 2012. Listing to all the fireworks going off around us and watching a few of the festivities on TV while looking at our tiny little miracle was just amazing! It was as if all around the country, everyone was celebrating with us!

This year, we’re excited to celebrate with the best neighbors ever here in Utah. If you’re like me, you’re probably looking through all of your favorite blogs and pins for some ideas on what to make and bring to your party. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
