Let Freedom Ring!


Happy fourth, bloggers!

Today I just wanted to drop by to wish you all a wonderful holiday. Make it a day full of memories - a day spent with friends and family. In-between all the family get-togethers, cook-outs (a.k.a overeating on potato salad and burgers *wink*) and fireworks (my favorite!), let us all remember the reasons that we have the freedoms we do today - the very principles on which our country was founded! Thank you to all the men and women in the armed forces who are keeping it that way - and upholding the principles on which our country was founded.

Wishing you all a wonderful Independence Day, friends.

  1. I hope ours is successful -- having new friends out, and hoping my dessert, which I have never made before, is not a total disaster. But we'll have fun, either way -- and I absolutely intend to overeat on potato salad! No fireworks here, though... there's a ban on.

    Happy Independence Day!

  2. Happy 4th, Rissi! Yes, i agree, we need to remember the cost of our freedom and appreciate the men and women risking their lives to keep it free. We also need to pray over the next election. Thanks for the reminder. :-)

  4. True! It's so important to remember our freedom came with a price and not to take it for granted.

    Have a wonderful Fourth! :D

  6. Charity - so... how was yours!? I am sure your dessert was great. My mother made an ice cream cake last Saturday that was new for us and it was quite tasty. ;-) What'd you make?

    No fireworks out your way? Yeah, I totally understand that one! Hopefully next year that will change!

    I hope you enjoyed a fun day with your family and friends!

    Gwendolyn - same to you! I hope you enjoyed a great day!

    The election is very important. I hope the American people vote to change things because if they don't I shudder to think what will happen!

    Juju - hope you had a wonderful day!!

    Thanks! I've had such fun making little headers and looking at new ways to make this blog "fresh" and a bit different each time. I am actually thinking of changing more than the header next time - adding some texture and background... so maybe it will all work! :-)

    Really glad you stopped in!

    Miss Hatcher - it is, isn't it!? I think we all lose sight of that - we never should though. As you say, taking it for granted is never a good thing.

    Hope you had a great fourth!

    Natalie - same to you! :-)

    Anita - right back at you! :-)

    Thank you for stopping by! Do so again.

    Dana - same to you! :-)

    And thanks bunches for stopping by - I hope you do so again sometime!

  7. It was good, overall. Didn't feel like the 4th, though, except for watching The Patriot in the evening.

  8. I haven't seen that movie in ages - as a matter of fact, I believe I've only watched it once! I should make it a habit for the 4th as it'd be excellent. Last year, my dad wanted to watch John Adams so we did. This year I watched shows (i.e. In Plain Sight and Missing) and still managed to get in a viewing of Undercover Blues - my family was in the mood for a good laugh. Considering it was so darn hot, we didn't feel like doing much else.

    Sorry it didn't "feel" like the fourth though - mine passed more like a normal day but then... we're boring and don't mind. :-)

    BTW: Your new profile pic? Yeah, it's adorable!

  10. It is cool isn't it!? I like those best. :-)

    Thank you - I always have fun designing these. Next up, something fun and bright; something that says "Summer."

    So glad you stopped by, Elise - thanks!
