Happy Fourth Of July

July 04, 2018
I really love the 4th of July. Today we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence with heartfelt Patriotism, food, and fireworks. As Americans we are all bonded together in a unique way and today we celebrate that bond to America and with one another.

I love the way our flag billows in the Summer breeze.

I love the way family and friends decorate their front porches for this special time of the year and...

I love to decorate mine.

I love the traditional red, white and blue and all that it means to America.

"While an official definition of the colors of the flag weren’t given in 1777 when the Old Glory was adopted as our nations flag, there are very specific reasons for each of the colors chosen: “White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, […] signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.3” Those three colors signify all that made our nation great. The purity and innocence of a new nation with all the hopes and dreams of the futures just beyond the horizon."

It's just a feel good sort of day.

Seems like our fellow citizens even smile a little brighter and bigger and a handshake is a little warmer.

God Bless America, the home of the free and the brave!

Happy Fourth Of July from all of our family to all of yours!
