Red White & Blue

I've decided that if I can't afford to take a vacation, I'm going to go vacationing in my mind. Right now I'm floating in a nice raft in the middle of a crystal clean Michigan Lake listening to a little Kenny Chesney... I can almost feel the sun bronzing my face.

Have you ever just needed to take a break from your day and let your imagination run wild? Lately, my life has been so consumed with work, deadlines and appointments that I've found "me time" is "no time".

I've decided I HAVE to have "me time" regardless of how ridiculously busy I am. Hmmm maybe blogging is my "me time " hehe. I do enjoy it and find it uber relaxing.

So anyways, now that I've gotten some relaxation going, whose ready for the holiday weekend coming up? I know that I am! Forecast is calling for low 80s and sunny skies in Michigan... YES please! I'm hoping Braylon will love the fireworks this weekend as much as he loved the ones on Memorial Day weekend. I might even buy some sparklers and see what he does!

Red, white and blue... mmm love those colors, and love the fact that I see them everywhere in the weeks leading up to the 4th of July. I love what they represent and the pride they have.

Did you know that June was the deadliest month in the war thus far? Nearly 3 dozen soldiers were killed this month, sad but true.

The 4th of July represents so many powerful issues in this country. Regardless of your political stance, as Americans we unite for one day and show our pride for a country built on simple principals: Freedom, Bravery, Pride. I encourage you this weekend to really take in the meaning of the 4th of July. Show respect to our country, our leaders, our troops and our FREEDOM.

Happy 4th of July to you, my fellow Americans! I couldn't be more prideful in such a troubling time in our country. Prayers prayers prayers... keep them coming for the safety of our troops and the decisions made by our leaders.

ONE love.
