Looking back over the years I’ve been in Oklahoma I have spent a handful of Fourth of July Holidays solo. Those years I learned how to make mead and scale rooftops to watch fireworks. This year was quite a change of pace having inherited a gaggle of kiddos and the making of new friends. We even threw an 18th birthday party and devoured a decadent strawberry cake my sister made. If you ever are in need of a cake that is as delightful on the inside as it is beautiful on the outside check out Kat’s Persnickety’s page on Facebook. Here are a few photos of our family ranch Fourth of July week!
