Happy Birthday, America!
Firecrackers, grilling out, pool time, homemade ice cream, watermelon slices, lemonade, lightning bugs, parades, and patriotic music! I love it all!
I hung flags on our front porch this past week.
It feels so good to see them hanging there.
Grateful for the freedoms I enjoy and inspired to make this freedom a reality for everyone.
The colors of the American flag are symbolic.
Red stands for hardiness and valor.
White stands for innocence and purity.
And, blue symbolizes perserverance and justice.
The colors of freedom. The colors of freedom for ALL!
Time to celebrate, meet up with friends and family, and eat some GOOD food!
My sister is the ultimate hostess and is prepping for a 4th of July bash! I can’t wait!
My attention span is firecracker short this weekend so, today, I have a smattering of invitations and announcements.
Short and sweet!
This month’s SonataScript book selection is “Beautifully Organized: A Guide to Function and Style in Your Home” by professional organizer, Nikki Boyd. The book contains SO MANY organizing tips and is written in such a BEAUTIFUL way! Gorgeous photography! (Who knew a garage could take my breath away! Seriously!)

Friday Finds with Bentley – YOU’RE INVITED TO THIS TOO!
Many of you have been joining me for a Facebook Live each Friday for “Friday Finds with Bentley.” THANK YOU for joining me! This is so much fun and I look forward to it each week!
Each Friday, I share fun and amazing items that I have discovered… all the while trying to keep our 65 pound Sheep-a-doodle, Bentley, from chewing everything in site and knocking over the camera.
Full disclosure: Bentley is the star of this venture and I couldn’t love it more!
I’m am now moving “Friday Finds with Bentley” to my Youtube channel. Don’t worry…I will still post a video on Facebook and Instagram but Youtube might allow you to see the episodes a little easier. See you each Friday!
