My husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary every year with a magnificent fireworks show because, you guessed it, we were married on July 4th! The Fourth of July is one of my favorite days of the year – not just because it’s my anniversary – but because I’m a complete sucker for this holiday! Yes, I know that the family barbecues, beach parties, and Piccolo Pete’s are not the real reason we should be celebrating, but it certainly is a great way to celebrate our independence, wouldn’t you say? Every year, I reminisce about the fireworks shows I’ve seen and the ones my family “created” for us kids in the backyard. Yet no Fourth of July party is complete without writing your name in the air with a sparkler or two!
This year, my husband and I will be enjoying our 3rd anniversary on a Napa Wine Tour and a night on the town in the city – San Francisco, that is. We both can’t believe it has already been 3 years – time sure flies! Stay tuned next week for an update on our tour…and maybe a historic review of the wineries we sampled at.
In other news, our Cherry Bomb cookie made its summer debut at our retail store a few weeks back and it’s still goin’ on strong. In fact, stop in at our downtown location on July 4th and pick up your FREE CHERRY BOMB COOKIE (with purchase of one cookie) when you mention you saw it on our blog! You might even pick up a few dozens to bring along to your July 4th barbecue to enjoy with family and friends – share a taste of Santa Cruz!
Happy Independence Day to all our Pacific Cookie Lovers – enjoy the beautiful weather, and a FREE COOKIE too!
