Happy Fourth of July!

Just popping in to wish you all a wonderful F O U R T H  O F  J U L Y  W E E K E N D ! ! !

Whether you are backyard barbequing, beach bummin’ or pool partying with family & friends, hopefully we can all take a moment to give thanks and appreciation for our rights and¬†freedom¬†as Americans. It is so¬†easy to get caught up in the hustle & bustle of special¬†activities, vacations or party planning¬†around these historical holidays and lose sight of the true¬†meaning behind them. I am trying to be better at remembering the why’s around days like this so we can teach our boys while they are young!

So, wherever you are and whoever you’re with, I hope the weather is lovely and you all enjoy your time together ūüôā¬†Have fun & be safe!
Happy 4th of July -- This is our Bliss{Henry feeling patriotic while celebrating on 4th of July 2014 – the day before one of my best friend’s wedding!}

4th of July Ideas

Confession: Since I am not hosting anything this 4th of July (and I feel like I have been flying by the seat of my pants, racing around like a crazy woman lately) I really didn’t decorate or make anything cute & fun to share for the upcoming holiday weekend, but GAAAHHH!! Have you seen all of the 4th of July goodies floating around Pinterest these last few weeks??!!

Here are a few of my faves:
