Happy Fourth of July - We are so blessed!

 What a beautiful Independence Day!

I am so thankful for our Freedom and the Country I was blessed to be born and raised in.
I appreciate so much the sacrifices of our servicemen and those who seek goodness.  And we are so blessed to benefit from the labors of good men and women who came before us!
I am so glad the weather held. 
The hail storm complete with thunder and lighting was dramatic tonight!

The kids had a nice time tonight.








I have so much to be thankful for! 

 When we were nothing more than kids my husband and I decided to get married. 
We enjoyed our first fireworks display on the 4th of July as a newly engaged couple.  Our marriage followed quickly after and the next year I experienced our daughter's first kicks as we watched the fireworks together again.

Note- This was my very first attempt at shooting RAW.


  1. Yes, we do have much to be grateful for in the USA! You have great memories of the 4th of July! What a great day to get engaged! I had to take my old blog private due to some "cyber-security" issues but have started a brand new blog. Link is below. Please visit, comment and follow along if you would like!

    1. I stopped in to see you. :) Glad you are back.
