    My family is having our second annual rib cook off! Many of my cousins, uncles, and aunts partake in making their own rack of ribs and we have a panel of judges that taste the ribs (not knowing who cooked each rack) and they pick a winner based on taste, sauce, and presentation! We have a great time!

  3. Pat Zupka says:

    I recently moved back to the area where my kids and grandkids live. I’m so excited to be spending the holiday with them again. It’s been too many years.

  4. Dixie Dozier says:

    Plans we have for the 4th of July include spending time with extended family, grilling out, swimming in the pool, and getting a watermelon to share. The neighbors always set off a few fireworks so we will watch it at the end of the day. Simple day that will create lasting memories.

  5. I love Stephanie Dawn products – especially since they are made in the USA!

    This year i will spend my day with my husband. since we up in our 70 we won’t drive long distance to see family,Just being thankful that we are healthy and that we live in the best country in the world….

  10. LORI PFAHLER says:

    Yard work and cook out with the family.

  11. Heather says:

    Oddly enough, fourth of July always makes me think of fresh-picked raspberries and homemade ice cream (the kind you make with that odd contraption that makes a “popping” noise every few seconds). When my grandparents were still around, my moms entire (HUGE – 11 kids, all with spouses, children and grandkids) family would get together the weekend of the fourth and there was always TONS of delicious, homemade and homegrown food. But the ice cream and raspberries stuck with me for whatever reason 🙂

    • Heather says:

      Oh, and I forgot to mention. Would love to rep Stephanie Dawn & PPJ with that cute tote in Chi-town 😉

  12. Cindy Amweg says:

    Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays! I enjoy time off work, cookouts, cocktails, swimming, visiting with friends, celebrating our country’s independence, making memories with our family. Love your blog!

  13. Sandy Seibert says:

    The best thing about 4th of July is family time. BBQs, swimming, and then watching the fireworks. No work, no school, no excuse for not having a great time with friends & family!!

  14. Jan Turner says:

    Our daughter will be visiting family in another state, so it will just be my husband, son, and I. We three will have a quaint picnic at the park (with my son’s favorite treats) and watch the fireworks. Happy Birthday America!

  15. Greta Espeaignnette says:

    My favorite 4th of July memory is family picnics with strawberry shortcake. The strawberries were fresh from our garden!

  16. Debora Tomko says:

    Stephanie Dawn Bags are wonderful!!! LOVE…Love…Love them!!
    My fondest memories of July 4th were spent in Florida where we used to put sparklers all around the little palm trees and light them !!

  17. Aunt Sandy says:

    Taking my Grandson and several of my favorite Stephanie Dawn bags to St Petersburg Florida for the whole week of the fourth of July…hoping I can make some new converts for you. My latest was an airline stewardess home based out of San Francisco, she absolutely loved my jubilee shoulder bag. So I take you with me where ever I go.

  18. Lori Kohn says:

    My favorite memory of 4th of July was taking homemade popcorn in the old station wagon up to watch the fireworks in Van Wert. Always loved the fact that we got to wear our pajamas in the car because it was going to be bedtime when we got home! Great memories:)

  19. Marilyn Blevins says:

    We will celebrate with our yearly tradition of having a cookout with family and friends then later in the evening watch the fireworks while making s’mores over the fire. A lazy fun summer day!

    In college, friends and I went out to a beach and had a bonfire. We watched an amazing fireworks display, played with sparklers and just had fun being young!
