July 4th is upon us. This Wednesday beer, bbq, and fireworks will overtake the day. The nation will celebrate its birthday by sitting back in a beach chair and breathing a sigh of “ah ha” for the work week respite. And we will drink and eat and shoot off spectacular TNT. And it will be good.

With all this time spent relaxing, there will hardly be time to put together a picnic. This is the year you allow yourself some rest. Let Whole Foods prepare a fanciful meal of pulled pork, coleslaw, and cookies for only $20.00. Just a quick trip to pick up your fare and you’ll be on your way to that last minute party your neighbors threw together.

Continue to celebrate. Carpe Diem!
