Happy 4th of July

The 4th of July always makes me think of my Great Grandmother. My father's mother's mother, today was her birthday. She was born in 1904. When I was little I thought it was so cool that her birthday was on Independence Day!

She was a wonderful chocolate-loving woman. When my family would visit her, I would perform all kinds of songs that I learned in choir and dance routines I learned in dance class, and my brother would show her some awesome Karate moves. My brother and I loved having such an attentive and enthusiastic audience member!

So, happy 4th of July everyone! I'm going to check out the New York City fireworks tonight!
