The Fourth And The Seventh Of July 2018

Our first Fourth of July here has come and gone. I must say we enjoyed every single bit of our new celebration. We celebrated twice...first on The Fourth with an amazing lunch followed by a small town parade and fireworks, and again on the seventh with dinner and fireworks by the lake with family. Tradition is very important to me, as I believe it holds the key to lasting memories for our children. This year we began new traditions, ones I hope we continue for many years to come.

The End.
I hope you made memories your own way, my friends.
And that you will hold them in your hearts forever.

Have a cozy week ahead.
Thanks for visiting!

  11. Hello Dearest! Catching up on all things Billie Jo (and all of your posts). Summer here has been crazy town - but in many good ways too...so I have been absent from blogland more than I thought I would be. I'm hoping to post tomorrow again and then take a break for a just a week or 2.

    But in the meantime I need to say how much I love this post! The patriotic colors, all of your adorable outfits, the amazing food. Well just the epitome of summer in all its glory. ;) Thanks for always sharing so wonderfully. xoxo


Thanks so much for saying hello!
