|The giant flag we've had forever, hanging from our back fence.|
I love that I can see it from the kitchen.
|Don't mind the screen: I loved this view through the |
blue glass jar in my bathroom.
|Last minute wreath: I found a long banner in the garage, and wrapped it around the empty|
grapevine wreath that was on my door, waiting for me to decorate .
I found this old water ski hanging from the rafters in our garage. We've lived in our house for seven years and I noticed it on Saturday. Johnny-on-the-ball, I'm not. Apparently it's been here since we moved in. Loving it in my garden right now.
Regardless of how we celebrate, I think I love July 4th for its' simple, old-fashioned pleasures.
Beyond the fireworks and ice-cream, showing off my red, white and blue evokes the pride and gratitude I feel to be American. It reminds me of how fortunate I am to have the freedoms and opportunities I enjoy, which countless men and women throughout our history have fought for.
Have a wonderful, safe and Happy Fourth of July, full of simple pleasures!
