My sister-in-law gets the short end of the stick when it comes to her birthday. It falls so close to the 4th of July that we often combine our Independence Day celebration with her birthday party.
On the upside, she gets a pretty awesome fireworks display, but it can sometimes be a real bummer sharing your birthday with the birth of an entire country’s independence;
That is why you will see the requisite deviled eggs, burgers on the grill, and cold brews at our celebration, but you will never see the 4th of July flag cake; you know the one topped with strategically placed blueberries and raspberries made to look like Old Glory.
No. We eat birthday cake. A really special birthday cake for the woman who won our hearts by marrying my brother.
She not only deserves a cake, she deserves a medal.
