Stars & Stripes

I don't know about you but my holiday weekend starts today! I love the 4th of July. I adore being outside, barbecuing, and spending time with friends and family. But let's also not forget the real reason why we celebrate this weekend...for our freedom and to honor those who fought for and are still fighting for it every day!

Theme-wise, it's all about the red, white and blue. I put together a fun mood board for all things 4th. Check it out.
