Four years ago I celebrated the 4th of July with a morning hike with my sister & best friend, Lindsay Austin and her amazing family too! ❤️ Reaching the top of that mountain and understanding the reward of the view, the knowledge that I had achieved something, and the comfort of knowing my path down was indescribable.
This year I have spent the weekend with my niece MJ, my sister-in-law Juni, and my brother-in-law Mat. 🎉 I’ve actually cooked, watched back to the future 1 & 2, and I’m getting dinner ready for tonight when Jerome gets home. Today is a family day, to recognize the blessings bestowed upon us through the people we surround ourselves with and love so much. ❤️
Today is also a day to recognize our country, our strength, and our weaknesses. Today is a day to pray for guidance in our nation’s next decision for president and worldwide safety for all. Thank you to the men and women who have, are, and did serve this country by risking their lives to save and protect myself, my luxuries and rights, as well as many others.
Today is a big day and I hope you are surrounded by the ones you love, friends & family, good food, laughter, and most of all remembrance.
