Right up there with coffee and wine, books and hats, canines and movies and Minnesota lake country, my list of loves also includes 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 […]
