Happy Fourth of July

my boys grew up in Fayetteville, NC.
and every year we celebrated the fourth at Fort Bragg.
(when we moved my kids were shocked that every 4th didn't include paratroopers, guns, a thank you to our troops, live music, cannons and a crazy amazing fireworks show.)
but really what living there taught us was to truly appreciate how blessed we are to live here, and how lucky we are to enjoy the freedoms we do as Americans.
our soldiers are amazing.
we love our troops, and we are so thankful for what they do for us.
living in Fayetteville opened my eyes wide to what military wives and families go through.
how much they sacrifice and how strong they are.
my friend's husbands have been deployed over and over and over again.....
it's crazy.
when you see a military family, you should thank them all.
and keep them all in your prayers.

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!

Wonderful tribute post to the men and women who faught/fight for our country. I think sometimes we forget and/or take for granted how truly blessed we are to be "free".

Happy 4th girlie!
