Let Freedom Ring 

As we all take a moment to celebrate Freedom with friends and family, I wanted to share with you a few favorites I’ll be wearing for the upcoming holiday. 

What’s a long weekend without a few refreshments? Sadly for me (it’s actually not SO bad), I am participating in the Whole30 program so the sweet treats and alcoholic drinks will have to take a backseat for a while. Excuse me while I sip my white ginger tea and munch on my blueberry/strawberry combo. 

Whenever I have a relaxing weekend I usually throw on denim shorts like these or these

July 4th Weekend

I hope everyone is recovering from the long holiday weekend. This week will be a little bit harder (especially today! Blah Monday’s) because the July 4th weekend is now behind us. 

I spent the weekend at the Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration in Crescent Hill. This was my first arts and crafts show and I had a blast! I met great people, sold my handmade jewelry to the community, and had an overall great weekend.

As we all know, this holiday weekend was not about watermelon, cook outs, red white and blue outfits and fireworks but rather about the freedom we all share because we live in the greatest country in the world. Because the great men and women who’ve laid their lives down and the ones who continue to serve this great nation- we stand and thank you for your service. 

Yesterday at church we sang and worshiped while honoring those who’ve fought and lost their lives, those who fought in the past and those who are currently serving. It brought a tear to my eye because the red white and blue, the patriotic songs, the feeling of knowing we live in a free country. But freedom isn’t free, so thank someone for their service when you see them. Speak up about your faith and speak out about the God who is holy and almighty. Some people in other places don’t have that option. 

We ended our weekend watching the Women’s Soccer Team take the victory over Japan. What a great game and an awesome win to keep the patriotic feelings flowing. Hope everyone has a happy, productive and wonderful week. Talk soon!
