Independence Day Party & Blog Hop

Happy Independence Day, dear friends! How are you celebrating your freedom this year? Many families like to commemorate our country by installing a flagpole and proudly displaying a national flag in their yards, Other families like to participate in local parades, host backyard barbecues, attend concerts, and enjoy firework displays!

How are you honoring our nation’s 236th birthday? I’d like to invite you to share your 4th of July posts with us! Most anything goes – here are a few favorites to get you started!

Shuttered Flag - JoysJotsShots

This beautiful photo was taken by the grandaughter of reader Joy Buck and shared at Inspire Me Monday during our Memorial Day Celebration. Their family knows what freedom means because their family has served our country around the world! The artist is unknown but the canvas for the flag is a painted shutter.

      Not a problem, Lisa – happy 4th! I’m sure there will be dups but I thought it would be nice to have all of the patriotic posts in one place – it will make a nice reference for future patriotic and 4th of July celebrations!

      Enjoy your day! 🙂
