Here are some 4th of July Thoughts and Ideas!

Hi Everyone! The 4th of July make me think of many things. For example I think of Parades, Picnics, Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Corn on the Cob, Family, Friends and last but not least the people who fought for our Independence. I was looking through the Martha Stewart website for some red, white and blue ideas and she had some great ones! Here are a few of those ideas.

The red, white and blue bunting on this porch is just great! Not too much and not too little I think!

I love garlands of any kind around doorways or hanging from a mantel. They are always so festive. I thought this garland was just wonderful!

Every garden looks wonderful when there are red,white and blue flowers in them! I love these three pots of flowers-wish I had thought to pot up something like this for my courtyard!

I love this arrangement. The windowsills in my house are deep so I really could recreate this-maybe I will.

I wish I was here right now! What a beautiful setting.

Now these are just fun! I love the flowers in the picture too!

If I had a gazebo, I would have definitely decorated it with these lovelies! I should tell my Mom, she has a gazebo.

Take a moment during this wonderful holiday weekend to remember those who have fought for your freedom and those who are still fighting for our freedom! Happy 4th to y'all! Enjoy!!

Love all the decorations! I wish I had many friends to invite to my home just so I could have a big shindig with tons of decorations.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
