Happy Fourth of July!

I LOVE the Fourth of July! It has always been one of my favorite holidays, yes even comparing with Christmas! I enjoy the family get together's, fireworks, hamburgers/hot dogs, s'mores, being on the lake, and celebrating our beautiful AMERICA! I love my country and am so grateful for our troops who are currently serving, as those who have served in the past too! I get choked up singing any patriotic song and try to make a point of saying thank you to anyone I know has served for our country. My grandpa served in WWII, and I love honoring him and remembering him every memorial day and Fourth of July especially. He passed away when I was younger, and my grandma proudly reminds us all the time about how he was so proud of his country and that he was able to serve for his family. Such a wonderful thing.

When I found out I was pregnant with Emma last year, I ventured into Old Navy last summer after the fourth, and even though we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl, I got a couple girl 4th of July outfits. I sort of had a feeling it was a girl so it was hard to control the shopping aspect of that...Anyways :) There was an adorable onesie that said "Daddy's Little Sweetie" that was red and had a flag on it. Then there was an even cuter dress that was red, white, and blue. Now they are in the closet just hanging there...I am sad that Emma isnt here to wear any of those cute outfits.

I am looking forward to the Fourth of July, celebrating our country's freedom. I know I will be missing and wishing my sweet girl was here to wear those adorable outfits I bought.

Happy Fourth of July and thank you to those who have served and who are serving our country. I appreciate it so much, as well as my hubby and our families!


  1. Angie...thanks for the comment today and for your encouragement on the hats. That really means so much. That's so cool that you were in Camarillo. That's only about two hours south of here. How cool is that! I love CA so much and don't think I'd want to live anywhere else!
    Happy 4th to you too!

  2. Hi Giving a quick update, you entered my giveway via kellys korner - i'm having another on my blog! :)

  3. Angie-

    I'm sorry that Emma can't wear those cute outfits too. All the 1st are rough. Last year I was so sad after Nate died. This year is much better. It will get easier.

    The 4th is my absolute FAVORITE holiday of the year. I got married 7/2 just so it would always be on the 4th of July weekend.

    Thanks for reading my blog. I look forward to your updates too! Feel free to email me directly if you want. I love to hear all about Emma and you can vent about all the other stuff if you need to.



Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
