Reflection on 4th of July

July 4, 2013

sunrise 4th

Happy birthday, ‘Merica!

It’s a day to just be American: grilling, drinking (for some), swimming, relaxing.

Ahh, summer.

I think having a toddler who is constantly living, feeling & genuinely enjoying every little detail of each day makes me pause to also appreciate the little things today.

lake walk

Like a morning walk, making breakfast & moving through the day slowly.

Randomly making banana bread.

And eating my sisters’ ice cream cake & gooey butter cake.

And my brother’s slow-cooked ribs.

4th of july bbq

Getting ready to eat S’mores (we’re at the Lake, after all).


And most of all, just spending the day with family…enjoying the small stuff.

I hope you all had a nice 4th of July.  I know I did.
