Happy Fourth folks! Summer has officially begun. Though in Texas we’ve been celebrating the start of summer since long before the summer solstice officially began, there is just something about the Independence Day holiday weekend that seems to solidify our desire for outdoor grilling and water sports. So grab your apron, make sure the super-soakers are filled (and hidden from the sun), and go enjoy the holiday weekend – you’ve earned it! Not to mention, what a year it’s been. This year we’ve been tested in ways many of us never even fathomed – between COVID-19 to power outages during the Winter Ice Storm – I think it’s safe to say we’re due for a win. Thanks to the incredible efforts by nurses, doctors, and scientists within the healthcare industry over the past year, we’re finally able to meet up again with loved ones to celebrate the holidays, and I could not be more grateful to them. Whether you’re grilling outside, or planning to shoot off fireworks this evening, we wish you a Safe and Happy Fourth of July!
