Now that it’s July, everyone here is finally healthy, out of school and ready to enjoy summer! Seriously though, only a few days out of school and all three kiddos got sick. One right after the other. What a way to start summer break! Thankfully it was short lived for each of them. Fingers crossed we’re all healthy straight through the rest of summer!

And finally, summer weather has hit! Of course, this year it’s meant super strong storms and a roller coaster of temps to get where we are. Last night alone, I we were woken up from sound sleeps to an intense storm with lightning flashes every 1-3 seconds. I’ve never in my life experienced a storm like that before. It was fascinating and a bit intense. Fingers crossed for sunny weather for the week ahead! It’s a big one… and my favorite of the year!

4th of July has and always will be one of my absolute favorites. But then my oldest decided to make her debut on the 4th! Every year I’m always thrilled she’s still in love with the 4th and all things red, white and blue. We’ve always joked that the country is celebrating her birthday, along with the country’s of course. Who wouldn’t love fireworks for their birthday?!

This year’s birthday cake won’t be red, white and blue so I had to fit in a little something to share here ahead of time. Everyone loves a fun and festive treat for a party!

These classic red velvet cupcakes are light and fluffy, with the perfect pop or festive color and topped off with the silkiest cream cheese frosting. Absolutely heavenly and a guaranteed favorite with friends and family! Don’t forget a few fresh blueberries on top! A perfect touch of tasty red, white and blue for any 4th of July party.

Easy, moist, fluffy and 100% delicious!

Be sure to add these to your 4th of July menu! You’ll be glad you did!
