God Bless the USA

I heart the 4th of July. It is such a great celebration of our country and everything summer. And of course a great excuse to get together with family and friends to BBQ and watch fireworks. This year, we decided to host a little 4th of July BBQ at the Doll house because we have a great view of the entire SLC and all of the firework shows in town (well, that and the fact that I LOVE to entertain). 🙂 So a few of our closest friends, along with Justin’s parents (who are in town visiting), joined us for a celebration filled with tons of yummy food, lots of laughter and a firework show that did not disappoint (thanks crazy neighbors!). It was such a fun night-so a big thanks to everyone who came and shared in the festivities with us!

Not only do I love celebrating the 4th with family and friends, but it is also a day where I try and find a few moments to take stock and remember just how blessed I am to live in this great country.  I am so grateful for our freedom and all of the unique blessing that we have because we live in America, and espeically for all of those who have dedicated and lost their lives to give us that freedom and those that continue to protect it. God bless the USA.

Happy Independence Day Weekend, everyone!

    1. Well thank you so much! I am trying to convince him to get rid of his mustache-which was the result of me begging him to shave his beard. Lol. 🙂 It was a very fun party. Hope you had a wonderful 4th too!!!
