Happy Fourth of July!
I've been traveling a lot around this great country of ours the past few weeks.
From hiking around the gorgeous canyons and geysers at Yellowstone National Park to buying a whole King salmon (!) at Pike Place Market in Seattle, it's been a crazy (but fun!) June.

I've always loved going to see the fireworks in Boston. The show is spectacular, synced to music played by the Boston Pops Orchestra. This year will be a bit bittersweet, as security is ramped up and tons of rules are set in place due to the bombings that occurred a few months ago.
This year, I won't be able to enjoy the celebrations with my local Bostonians. Instead, I'm at our nation's capital to attend a wedding and visit friends. For the first time ever, I'll descend upon the Mall like so many other Americans to actually see the fireworks in DC. I heard it's quite a show, so I'm looking forward to it (though also a bit anxious about the crowds!).
Hope you all have a wonderful fourth. Like so many others across America, I'm at a friend's house this afternoon enjoying your classic BBQ dishes - burgers, hot dogs, Taiwanese grilled corn (OK, maybe that's got a slight Asian twist to it!), and lots of salad.
Let the celebrations begin!
