July is here and with the start of the year's hottest month, the bold colors of red, white and blue are popping up all over the place. Take a stroll down any neighborhood in the USA, porches, cars and even dogs are emblazened with Old Glory.
What are your plans for the 4th of July? Are you throwing a patriotic picnic or a backyard barbecue?
All of this colorful scenery has inspired us to throw our own DIY Independence Day picnic. And no picnic is complete without a bit of Old Fashioned Lemonade
