Last weekend, I gazed listlessly out the window as a sheet of pounding rain quashed all hopes of sunbathing and beach volleyball for the day. I shuffled out of my flip-flops, dropping my beach towel on the floor in a tragic heap, and proceeded to my usual weekend backup plan–the Internet. Fortunately, I managed to douse my foul mood with craft blogs, which inspired in me a wave of anticipation for the upcoming 4th of July celebration. Several ambitious goals later, I had effectively planned and prepared for my very own patriotic extravaganza!
