Happy 4th of July!

This weekend is already off to a great start. Today, my favorite tennis player, Novak Djokovic made it into the finals at the Wimbledon and became World #1!  Tomorrow is a celebration of my great-aunt's 80th birthday with lots of  fun and food (to start the day off, all the girls are going out for manicures and facials!). Sunday... Wimbledon.  Monday... the office is closed! 

Fireworks will light up the skies from the Atlantic to the Pacific - when you see them, think of the soldiers that are keeping us safe and protecting our great nation. Say a prayer for them, for their families, and for our leaders.

Wherever you are and wherever you go, may you have a glorious weekend celebrating Freedom!

God Bless America!

Zucchini Double Header

Take a look at these pictures I just took in my backyard...

I have never seen a double-headed zucchini flower. EVER. Once, last summer, I had a two-headed zinnia grow in my garden. But alas, I did not take pictures of the flower so it remains an urban legend. 

Note: this is not a developing zucchini "fruit" - it's merely one of the buds on the plant... can't wait to for the summer squash to ripen so I can make this.
