photos from Martha Stewart

I’m reading my July issue of Martha Stewart Living and devouring all the red, white and blue (I think it’s my favorite color combination). I just realized this will be my first Independence Day where I’m not living in America. So strange! I think we will visit the Normandy D-Day beaches on July 4th — and eat peanut butter sandwiches too — so that we’ll feel properly American that day.

Have you already made your 4th of July plans? Maybe we should all make one of Martha’s red, white and blue desserts.

P.S. — It makes me happy that France’s flag colors are red, white and blue too. And that their version of independence day falls in July as well. Makes it easy to feel patriotic. : )
