The 4th of July is a special tradition in my husband’s family. He has run the Peachtree Road Race for 27 years IN A ROW. That’s right. It’s a tradition that he’s managed to keep up for 27 years. He’s amazing. Steadfast. Loyal. Traditional. Love him. I started a new tradition of my own for the 4th of July: Losing his family’s annual baking contest. Just kidding. I might have won a few times… maybe even this year. Most Patriotic!!! It was a small celebration this year since the 4th fell during the middle of the week and there were not as many competitors. However, it was still so much fun and very special. These cookies took home Most Patriotic! Hooray! Now, I’m off to start planning next year’s patriotic sugar endeavor….
