The Fourth of July is right around the corner. It will sure be different without fireworks this year. This virus has sure ruined a lot of summer time plans. But luckily, it does not have to ruin everything. Although, with everything going on in the world, it may not seem like we have something to celebrate. I am here to say that we do. We are so blessed to live in the land of the free. To have this beautiful land around us to raise our families in. We may not be having a firework show here in the Valley but we still have something to celebrate. With that being said, I would love to share with you all my favorite Red Velvet 4th of July Cupcake Recipe!
