Happy 4th of July & Upcoming Giveaway

I want to start off by wishing everyone a very happy and safe 4th of July. I am so thankful for the freedom we continue to experience. Freedom, as we all know, comes with a price. The men and women who put their lives in danger, and those who give their very lives, are to be honored not just on the 4th of July, but all year round.

If I see someone in uniform, as embarrassing as it might be, I go up to them and thank them for serving. I try to say it as fast as I can because I tend to start crying. I'm that thankful. If I see an older man wearing a hat signifying that he served in the past, I want him to know how much I appreciate him. I'd like to encourage you to do the same thing the next time you see a service person. Let them know that you appreciate what they are doing, even if you don't agree with the war.

Now to change topics, I want to tell you about a birthday celebration coming up. I'll be turning the big 4-0. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around that number. How in the world did that happen? What happened to the last 20 yrs?

So to celebrate I'll be doing giveaways every day during the week of the 13th. Keep an eye out and be sure to check back throughout that week.

Happy Freedom Day
