Happy Fourth of July

Today, as we celebrate our independence, please remember those who are serving, and have served, in our armed forces. My step father served in Vietnam. I am thankful for him, and I make sure he knows that.


I also have uncles who served in the military. They did not experience combat, but they served nonetheless. For that, I am thankful.



I can't imagine what our lives would be like if it weren't for the people who voluntarily put their lives on the line for our freedom.


To my family members who served: I love you. To those I do not know: Thank you.


Later today, we will be celebrating at our house with family and friends. A little swimming, a little grill food, and lots of laughter! What are you doing to celebrate?
