tonic tuesday 6/28: fourth of july guest post!

Hello blogging world! I'm Erica, the model for A Wild Tonic, asSISTER (her assistant and sister) to Lauren, and today a guest blogger. In the past, Fourth of July consisted of my sister and I running in our front yard playing with sparklers. But in the past few years before she leaves for Maine, we throw a mini celebration that includes watching the practice fireworks in the neighborhood, having our parents barbecue for us, and drinking some beers. Whether you are going to be with friends, family, or at a park watching fireworks what is better than some stars and stripes in your outfit? Here are some lovely Etsy items that will be great for this holiday weekend.
