Happy 4th to you too! What a beautiful grouping of prints! I adore "The Land that I love" since it also has Alaska on it. ♥
"They had nothing but their will, their dreams, and a yearning to be the masters of their own destinies. They started out with no allies, no supplies, no uniforms, and no leadership, and still they fought, and sacrificed, and died. They continued on when everything told them that their situation was hopeless, and yet the fire in their souls would not be quenched; they fought on. Men with no shoes, bloody feet, and very little to eat surviving through that brutal winter, and the next, and the next until one day they realized that they had won."
Thanks for sharing that. They put it beautifully.
We take the liberties of this nation for granted far more liberally than we realize. And it's amazing, and incredibly humbling, when you think of what must have been required to establish this country.
Unfortunately, I think we're so divided these days, there's no way we could have accomplished this in a modern time. Which makes me even more grateful that this was a legacy left for us.
Happy 4th to you! I hope you have a wonderful, beautiful day! 🙂
Happy Fourth of July!! We are lucky, aren't we, to have such freedom?!
I love your description of how our feeds were full of happy families preparing for the day…you're so right. makes me smile to think about it.
hope your day was great!
This was lovely and the prints are adorable! 🙂
Just catching up on my blog reading…how's the foot? I know how it feels to NOT be able to work out after you have been acing it. I had PF too last summer, and I use these now-
Nike sneaks helped a lot too- vip.zappos.com/nike-air-relentless-black-white
I don't need the supports in the Nikes( YEA).
My daughter is a dancer, and she likes to use foam rollers to ease muscle issues-and sine FP is the result of shortened calf muscle issues, using a roller to help stretch your calf is a good thing. It really helps.
I had an knee injury-dog chased squirrel with me attached to leash while we were on a run; torqued it good-took three months to heal. I still went to my boot camp workouts, and just did whatever I could-I was so afraid of losing ground! So I get where you are coming from. Just do what you can-and if you can find a second hand recumbent bike, get one. I needed it for my knee, but I still use it while watching TV. Wow, this was a bit long, but hope that's ok-
