I bet many of you have wonderful plans for today. Woohoo! Seems like a good day for a visit with friends, something delightful thrown on the grill, a nice fruit salad, a fun dessert – tunes playing in the background and a lot of smiles. With that being said…Continue reading “Happy 4th of July!”
Today is a big day for several reasons – but it’s also a day to be grateful/blessed for growing up in a loving environment. I don’t take that for granted, I am thankful every single day.
