Wishing You A Sparkling 4th!

Happy 4th of July!   Baby C woke up the entire house this morning at 6am screaming "I am ready for the fireworks!"  Before we could say anything Mini K informed him, in her very grown up 7 1/2 year old voice, you wouldn't have this day if it wasn't for General Washington!  THANK YOU PBS FOR LIBERTY'S KIDS!

As a country we are one year older today, but there is something about driving by Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day and the 4th of July that really make me stop (not in the middle of the road) and think about all of the men and women, and their families, that we will never meet, that put their lives on the line and chose a career to protect our way of life.  It is truly humbling.  I pray they have peace today and can relax and enjoy the day, and the fireworks, with their families!  For those of you working today, THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO!

I also want to say thank you for supporting my independent small business!   Until Sunday all items in my ETSY store are 20% off with code:  SPARKLER.  SO if you have had your eye on our engraved sunglasses now is the time to purchase!

Enjoy the long weekend with your loved ones and friends!
