The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday, so I am always excited to celebrate when it rolls around. This year I kicked off my Independence Day celebrations with the Symphony in the Gardens at Thanksgiving Point.

We had these adorable treat boxes on our chairs
The special guest this year was Michael Martin Murphey, a genuine old cowboy music artist. He was adamant that he was a cowboy music artist, NOT a country music artist. There is a difference. Mr. Murphey was so fun and had so many interesting stories to tell in between songs.
