Because of the Brave
Land of the free, because of the brave. Let that sink in. Although our leaders tend to continuously disappoint the average American; it is important we take some time during this Holiday week and reflect, say thanks and be grateful for all of those who have, and continue too, fight for our rights every single day.

I personally love the Fourth of July. I love seeing everyone emerge from their homes, spending time outside, connecting with others around their community. I love smelling the array of cookouts, ranging from barbecues to pasta salads. The Fourth of July may not have presents or assigned menus for meals but the community life certainly comes out to play and that is what makes my heart dance.
This year the family and I will devour our classic Independence Day barbecue and then head out to our hometown for some patriotic festivities. But if you know me, you know I will definitely be rocking a festive look perfect for the occasion.
With the weather heating up, and the holiday in the middle of week, many are bustling, getting ready for family cook-outs and late-night fireworks!
