Self Portrait Tuesday






Lelly's challenge for this week: how will you celebrate Independence Day? what does it mean to you?

Usually my family has a family reunion over the 4th of July weekend, so Independance Day is associated with family and fun and relaxation. This year, my family reunion took place two weeks earlier. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been busy moving to our new home. So, on Independence Day, I am planning to relax and enjoy the view from my new front porch!

As always, I am grateful for those brave Americans who have died so that I may have the freedoms that I do. God bless our service members. God Bless America!

Thank you! I did have a relaxing 4th. I refused to unpack a single box the entire day!!
I see so many brave young faces at every military base we visit. They get younger all the time (because surely, I am not getting older!?!)

WHooo Hoooo!! I am so excited to see your new place. (not that I REALLY ever saw your old place HA! HA!) Your house is beautiful and maybe one day I will show up and have a show there :o)

I know the 4th is a special holiday for your family and I hope you enjoyed it :o) Your front porch is wonderful and I hope you spent some relaxing time on it!!
