Happy Independence Day!

This week, as I was looking through our Lightroom photo gallery, I was struck by how much of our country we have had the privilege to show our sons.  They have traveled from “sea to shining sea,” from the mountains to the prairies, and many spots in between.

One vast land with a diverse landscape and beauty in which we could freely travel.  We have had the amazing and literally heart-pounding experience of watching a rocket go up in space

We have visited the manmade beauty of the national capital

And the natural beauty of Yosemite

And we have been amazed at the many symbols of freedom such as our lady of liberty

The amazing thing?  It is all here in America, one country, diverse in opinions and thoughts, but united together under one flag.

We wish you a safe and blessed 4th of July.  Please take a moment to remember the men and women who bravely fought for our freedoms, 241 years ago and every year since.   And may the pride and patriotism of this day stay with us throughout the year!
