We recently put hardwood floors in our manufactured home and after doing so, I never felt like the color flowed well with the rest of our home.

That was the thought that went through my mind a lot as I tried to make a choice. I finally settled on black.

This Independence Day looks so different for our family. In the 19 years that I have been with my husband, we have always done the same thing. Pack up, head to the creek and spend the afternoon with all of our extended family. The children swim in the creek, and the adults lounge in their chairs, chatting, making multiple trips to the table to snack on foods. The sound of fireworks, kids splashing, and the endless chatter has made for some wonderful memories.
The day before Independence Day, the birthday of our great country. It is one of my favorite holidays for it's patriotic pride of our great country, and for the memories of sitting along the creek bank, swimming, eat delicious picnic food with our large extended family and watching late night fireworks. I am a little late in adding any touches of red, white and blue to our home but I added a few flags and it gave our home just the touch of patriotic pride that it needed.

Sitting at the computer with the windows open and the feeling of fall is heavy in the air.
