In this age of social media, it's so easy to compare our life with that of others. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy online media sites A LOT (sometimes bordering on addiction). I don't know about you, but I find it so easy to slip into "coveting mode" whether it be a gorgeous home, travels to an exotic land, meal preparation fit for a photo shoot, DIY projects with perfect results, and on and on.

I often find myself saying, "Self, take a step back and remember, you have a GREAT life!". 

I never spoke truer words!!!

Wait...tomorrow's July 4th?!!!!

My husbands' youngest sister and her family (a husband, 21 and 19-year old kiddos) have been visiting from out-of-state for the last six days. Although they've bunked at my in-laws' house, we've spent most of the daylight hours with them (my in-law's are in their mid to late eighties and tend to like their quiet time!). Our "Tennessee kin" head out today, making a stop in the Bastrop area to visit more family and share in their annual July 4th celebration. Wait, JULY 4TH CELEBRATION?!!!! That's tomorrow? Yikes, with all the additional activity the last few days, I have no red, white and blue festivities in the making! Guess I'd best pull out a few of the mini "Old Glories" and get in the patriotic frame of mind. 

That being said, wishing you and yours a happy and safe Independence Day!

Please keep the brave men and women serving our country in your thoughts and prayers as well as the families that 
love and support them!
