Is it really July already?

I can't believe today is the first day of July...time is such a funny thing to me now. I don't really have much in the way of time markers accept holidays how. Thinking about the upcoming festivities of the 4th of July reminds me so much of last year. Pregnancy was way hard and it seemed like there were few things that got me through it. Of course knowing I would have a beautiful baby in the end, my wonderful husband and family to name a few. But the Holidays were the markers to remind me the end was near. And the 4th of July was a big one!

I love love July. Not only because we get to celebrate so many birthdays, and spend time with family and see fireworks! But it is so nice to be able to reflect on the fact that we are sooooooo lucky to live in this country. Lucky to live in this promised land where we are free.

One of my all time favorite things to do (not just in July, but it seems like that is the only time it happens) is to stand in sacrament meeting and sing patriotic songs. I always feel the spirit so strong. I am so thankful to be an American.

GOD BLESS AMERICA my home sweet home!

I agree 100%. I love the 4th of July. It is crazy to think back to last year isn't it?

Happy 4th...I can totally relate, the 4th was big for me last year too! This year I'm excited to celebrate by wakeboarding...last year I had to watch!
