July 14, 2011

When we first moved in to our house overlooking shelby bottoms greenway, we had no idea what we were getting. All we knew was that for as close to downtown Nashville as we were, we were extremely blessed to have a view of green, not concrete! :) After the first 4th of July celebration rolled around, though, we knew that the blessings far exceeded the green view. Our back porch is our very VERY favorite place to sit on 4th of July because the horizon lights up with fireworks from all the neighboring towns. We get a free show right from our own backyard…literally. Our goal is to never miss one of these celebrations as long as we own this home. And when we move to our farm, we will have a large panoramic photo of the 4th of July horizon blown up for us to take with us. Sounds silly but it really is that special to experience!

Now, fireworks from your back porch does have a downside. We do have neighbors down the street who ALSO like to compete with the shows on the horizon (not sure if this is a violation of any city codes but no one seems to mind)! Unless you have 2 toddlers who are trying to sleep, it really is kind of fun to watch. This year they upped the ante and I shot each one of these pictures up at the rooftop from my back deck. These were literally over our heads as we ate our dinner by candlelight on the back porch.

Did you go see fireworks? or set off your own? Leave a comment below sharing your 4th of July traditions! :) Enjoy a peek at ours!
