Happy 4th of July

My morning started off with a 45 minute yoga practice mostly of balance poses so my legs are definitely feeling the burn. A bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and then a hot shower. I feel refreshed.

Tonight I'm off to the Green Day concert at the Key Arena and hope to meet up with a few friends for dinner before the concert. Later in the evening, it's drinks with more friends. I'm keeping myself very busy today/tonight before the 4th of July festivities tomorrow. What am I doing to myself?

Today I scoured my home for holiday items to photograph for today's post, but couldn't find anything but a roll of stamps and these luscious cherries. Why cherries? Well, I was speaking to my girl's nanny yesterday and she said that cherries remind her of the 4th of July because it was always something she and her family had for the holiday. So I thought they would be appropriate for today's post -- aren't they lovely? And yes, they taste just as delicious as they look. Thank you, Susan for picking them and giving me a large bag full. Unfortunately, this is the last of them. We will try to savor them.

And then lastly, here are some images from a recent window shopping trip to University Village.

I love this woven tray and the dishes are something to behold. Miller Pollard has some of the best home accessories and furniture for small homes.

The children's section at Miller Pollard is magical. What child wouldn't love to have all of this.

One day I will own this book. Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey: Desserts for the Serious Sweet Tooth by Jill O'Connor is right up my alley. I found this while at Crate&Barrel.

Enjoy the holiday weekend and I'll have more posts on Monday. Watch for images of my gigantic homemade ice-cream sandwiches and images from the 4th.
