Happy Celebration of Freedom Day!

I love celebrating the 4th of July! I’m not into fireworks so much, but I love the All-American-ness of the holiday. We usually have some sort of all-American lunch and just play games or relax all day. This year we are having Southern Pulled Pork Sandwiches, my own homemade slaw, my own potato salad, fresh homemade lemonade, I’m making one of those American flag cakes, and—of course—ICE CREAM (my favorite).

It has been a whirlwind around here lately, and the last couple of weeks have been a blur. Right smack dab at the beginning of our Vacation Bible School, that I direct, I got hit with a bad case of bronchitis. I’m just now beginning to feel like myself.

Yesterday was a “lucky” day for me—I was chosen as a random winner on Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2012 (June tag), AND my Inspiration Challenge project was chosen for an award on the Frilly and Funkie Blog! 

Happy Independence Day!
