“To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.“-Barbara Bush

What's your 4th tradition? Fireworks? BBQ? Friends and family? Parade? Swim at the lake or beach?

Last summer Philippe and I were away on my book tour on the 4th and, well, it just wasn't the same. Our plus 5 were with his parents on ACK (Nantucket), and they had a blast with their grandparents and aunt and cousins; however, Supermom's heart beat a bit slower that 4th of July. We were in Seattle -- which rocks -- but there's nothing like family on the 4th -- and every day.

So hug your kids/friends/family close today and enjoy whatever you're up to and be grateful for this moment. This moment is your life. And those you love are the most important part of it.

Have the best day ever!
