I was thinking yesterday about Independence Day, and how it’s one of the only holidays that we, as Americans, observe with a celebration that actually fits the true meaning of the holiday. That celebration usually involves everything that we’ve come to know and love about the good ol’ US of A, including fireworks and barbeques piled high with a smorgasbord of sizzling meat.
We did both in my household (we’re actually heading out to see fireworks tonight). I even grilled up some watermelon for the burgers, which is a Fourth of July tradition of sorts.
Speaking of watermelon, our first National Watermelon Month prize is here and up for grabs! It’s the absolutely adorable little watermelon bag seen above. (My wife’s description, not mine.)
I bought it on Etsy, and the person who made it describes it as “a sweet little bag for your money, keys and credit cards.” The seller also listed the bag’s measurements as 17 centimeters wide and nine centimeters high. I’m not good with the metric system, so that could mean it’s four feet wide or maybe four inches wide. Either way, you can put your keys and credit cards in it. (NOTE: I just used a handy conversion calculator – it’s 6.7 inches wide by 3.5 inches high.)
I’ll choose one comment from all the comments left on the blog this month to win this “adorable” bag. To get things started, leave a comment with what you’d put in this bag if you won it!
