If you're in the US - hope you have a super nice holiday! I have mixed feelings about fireworks. I love to watch them from afar - I hate to be near them up close...like when they're fired off in your back yard - I don't like that....except for sparklers! I have a special place in my heart for sparklers. On my eighth birthday my family and I were on vacation (Top Sail Island in North Carolina). My parents couldn't find candles for my birthday cake so instead they topped it with sparklers! I have never forgotten that memory and every July since, I've tried to make sure I get to wave around some sparklers. We'll be doing so today!!
p.s. this photo is old and was taken with my phone and is not very good...but, i'm traveling and don't have my hard drive with all my good photos...regardless, The West End overlook in Pittsburgh is a great place to see the fireworks!
