For me, the 4th of July in the past had been more about nice long weekends (admit it, you too), than about the actual meaning of Independence Day. This July 4th, I am reminded of how lucky I'm to be living in the land of the free- happy birthday USA!
To celebrate, my family and I retreated to Alderbrook Resort- a place where dogs and tots are welcome. Fireworks, relaxation, rejuvenation... perfect receipe for a short getaway.
