Confession: I love the fourth of July. So very much. I love the smell of firework smoke. I love the sound of fireworks. I love wearing red and blue and american flags. I love hearing the national anthem all day. I love life on the fourth of July. Yesterday I spent the day with my family. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, Ebbet’s Field. They have the most amazing burgers ever. If you live in the Springfield area and haven’t been, I highly recommend it. After that, we went to Hammons Field and cheered my favorite Cards on for a spectacular win. It was awesome. Again, I love the fourth of July.
