Happy 4th Of July

I don't know what I've been doing but I failed to decorate early enough for 4th of July. 
Usually, we aren't home but today we get to stay home. The kids will all be here for a very rare family lunch. 

I love being home for 4th of July and pulling out patriotic decor. 


    1. a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against 
     enemies or detractors. 


      1. having or expressing devotion to and vigorous support for one's country


"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." 

"My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died
Land of the pilgrims' pride
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!"

Have a blessed day my friends! 


  1. You've gone all out and it shows! Love all the decor and the definitions. This was not only informative, but also inspirational.

  2. Happy 4th Katie. I love all your decor but the little fire truck well I am partial to that lol! Looks great. Hope you had a great day.

  3. It all looks wonderful Katie! I love little Miss Liberty, the star pillow, and the fire truck. I have a fire truck and have never pulled it out for my patriotic d├ęcor. Why not? :) I've had mine up for some time, so I'm going to start taking it down tomorrow. Ready for a change.

  4. I love the words you wrote with your decorations. I agree returning to the scriptures gives us peace in these times. As I listened to the song God Bless America yesterday I thought why don’t we sing that more? To ask God not only to bless us but stand beside and guide us, what could be better? I also thought about the time we take each day to complain about our government. What if instead we spent that time in prayer for our nation?

  5. Love these images. You are truly patriotic!I hope you are enjoying the summer and had a truly fabulous fourth.
    Your kind comment truly made my day!


  6. Your photos are wonderful. Hope your 4th was, too.

  7. I got a few small flags in my hanging flower pots and one in my front flower bed is all.
    I really like that small window pane with the wreath and flag
    It has sure been a hot 4th here in central Missouri

  8. Great post, Katie! The decor looks great, and the words to go along with it were the perfect narrative. Hope you had a nice lunch with the family. Thanks for sharing at Best of the Weekend!
