Happy Fourth 2021!!Summer of 2021!! Guest Post from MMK!

Time to Grill, Celebrate Freedom with Cheers!! Happy July 4th Weekend!!

Enjoy friends, family, the outdoors, and some time off!

You and your Home can have fun wearing Stars, Stripes – Red, White, and Blue!!

We all love breathing fresh air – watching Fireworks in the sky and having time to enjoy life!!

Mask free? Wearing lipstick again? Yes and Yes!!

Hard to believe we have completed 6 months into 2021! Maybe now the onward and upward is real!

Grilling is one of those traditional joys for all! Whether at the beach or in the backyard…wonderful smells – so ceremonial – chicken, meat, veggies….garlic bread?? You decide the menu…salads, cheeses, watermelon, cherry pie, homemade ice cream, popsicles, maybe a loveable flag cake?? Memories…to be made and shared!! What are your traditions?

Mark Bittman, the award-winning former New York Times Food Writer and acclaimed author, teaches us all! Enjoy his Books – great gifts for couples & men too! The Mini Minimalist: Simple Recipes for Satisfying Meals: A Cookbook is a charming size too! I love his concept, “Buy the best ingredients available and combine them in ways that make sense on any given day.”

You cannot help but be inspired by international Interior Designer Nicky Haslam’s fabulous Mediterranean Yacht Design – ultimate glamour – Yes!! Red, White, and Blue are certainly universal in appeal…think France too – her Red, White, and Blue Flag…and Bastille Day, coming right up to July 14th !!
