It’s almost the Fourth of July, and proverbially speaking, that means the corn growing behind me in these pictures here should be about knee high. It feels like the summer is flying by (sweet corn season looms deliciously in the coming months) and I can’t believe it’s already time for the most patriotic of holidays.
I always like to dress the part, but this year I decided to trade in my sartorial stars and stripes for a more subtle take on red, white and blue. Classic Converse sneakers keep me ready for impromptu cornhole matches, while a cozy marled sweater offers protection from cool nighttime breezes—especially important when staying up to watch fireworks shows.
Cheers to a weekend full of barbecued food, good Wisconsin beer and national pride!
