literally jumping in to say...


just wanted to jump in and wish everyone a super-duper, happy 4th of July! my family and i rolled out of bed into swimsuits for a morning/early afternoon at the beach. and then later today, we'll camp out with our chairs, coolers and food at our favorite spot at the base to watch the fireworks at dark. i cannot wait to hear the Marine Corp band and eat lots of food (burgers and cotton candy, please!) - but i especially can't wait to watch those fireworks fall from the sky. call me patriotic, call me sentimental - but i really do have a respect and thankfulness for this great country that i call home. and every year that i see those fireworks explode into a million colors and the loud boom vibrates against my ears and body, i am reminded that we are blessed with freedom - and may we never take that for granted. God bless America!

*fist pump in the air*
it's a party in the USA! oooooh, party in the USA!

much love.
{happy birthday, america!}
