Ladies and Gentleman, the month you've all been waiting for...
July 1st: Canada Day. Yes. I am excited about this holiday, mostly because a)it's a day before my birthday and b) Robin Sparkles said it best when she exclamed "I'm gonna rock your body till Canada Day."and c) my little brother in law is serving in Canada, so I figure I should celebrate.
July 4th: America's birthday. Yes, I was lucky enough to be born near America's birthday, which makes me feel like my birthday celebration lasts for days! (of course, I'm just a little less cool than my sister in law Kari who was born on this day). The 4th of July has to be one of my favorite holidays: BBQ's, mountains, water parties, FIREWORKS, junk food. And no work. Best. Summer holiday. EVER.
And lastly, I can't forget to mention July 31st: The day the second most important boy in my life made his entrance into this world.(Sam is the first FYI) The day 'The Boy Who Lived' was born. That's right, I speak of Harry James Potter. Because of his birth, my nose got sucked so far into a book for the first time in my life. Sure, I read and enjoyed books before, but never with any other book before this did one completely caputre my whole imagination. And has kept my imagination going ever since. Thank you JK Rowling, for making Harry's birthday in such a fantastic month.
