We are one week away from one of the prominent summer holidays. The fourth of July is the day our nation celebrates its independence and I celebrate my birthday. With its arrival comes BBQs, parties and special events all in honor of the country's, and my, special day. I look forward to this holiday annually not just because it’s one less day we have to work, but because we use it as a day of gathering together with family and friends to enjoy good food, fireworks, and laughs. Before you finalize the details of your party, be sure you've checked out my six must-haves for every fourth of July celebration.
