My Fourth was spent poolside with family. Sunshine was abundant all day, and fireworks stormed the sky that night in what my siblings and I agreed was the best show we'd ever seen live.
The flexible work environment at EY lets me enjoy the fruits of my decorative labor while working from home.
Working off-site isn't so bad either--a social event brought my team back in time to a roller skating rink.
My favorite siggi's flavor (partially because it's my nickname's sake) accompanied by the cutest snack size tupperware to take to the office.
I learned new rules to the old game of gin rummy but was sorely defeated by my dad.
This strawberry almond skillet cake kept us feeling festive into Sunday morning, the fifth of July.

And another work perk: my holiday weekend continues into tomorrow. Plan is to make a personal day out of the time off with those odds and ends that always trail on the to-do list. Wish me luck!
