Happy Independence Day!

Hi!  I do feel grateful right now. 

I'm sitting having my coffee, blogging on my favorite holiday.  Ya know why it is my favorite holiday?  It's because at the fundamental core of everyone on this planet called earth is their right to religious freedom.  Yup, our forefathers came to this land to get away from taxation but that was after they left their beloved homelands for the right to their own religious beliefs without persecution.  I believe that people's spiritual beliefs are deep inside of everyone and that is our basis or the beginning of us and then we build our lives from that point.  With this particular freedom we have here in America we can all celebrate our religious customs in the way and manner we choose to.  This holiday, "Independence Day" transcends every religion because every American shares in this holiday! 

So, party hearty today!  Think of those who came before us who have and for those who are working to keep our freedoms.

It's a gorgeous day, 78 degrees at 10am and now I'm going outside to tend to my garden where I feel the closest to God!  I'm making progress on my projects!!  I'll have pics for you in the week. 

I didn't mean to get all "Sunday School" on ya...I'm just sayin'.

Hi Annielizabeth, believe you'd a fabulous day. I can feel all American celebrate the 4th. Very atmospheric. Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my nuno felt dresses. Really wool + silk chiffon you can create stunning pieces. If we have chances we can exchange skills. Your crochet works are gorgeous too. I love so much handmade stuff, way of care and love to someone.
God bless and have a nice day.

Happy post-4th, Annie! Yes, America's freedoms are what makes it a great country and I'm grateful for it. Glad you were able to take a long weekend and enjoy this great weather outdoors in your garden. We were at my son's baseball tournament in Santa Clarita and it was 102 degrees! Miserable. Needless to say, it was nice getting back to the mid-70s in Santa Barbara :-)
Happy Birthday to your mom!
Have a good week. xJosie
