Friday night fireworks

I’m not really sure why I love fireworks so much. They’re loud, pretty, and typically associated with some kind of special event or holiday.

But I think I also enjoy them because they command a certain type of respect. When fireworks go off, people stop what they’re doing, pause their conversations, and watch.

Not too many other things in life so easily and quickly grab our attention.

And then there’s the firework smoke smell. Yum!

We’re flying off to Mexico later this week to spend a little beach time, so we won’t be in the country for the 4th of July.

Sorry. I just had to type that out one more time.

Moving on.
