happy 4th of july!!

 here is a collection that i thought would be perfect to share this 4th of july!
these pretty all-american photos come from:
{stylist} butterfly sparks creative & {photographer} kelli trontell
they are lovely!

it is so fun to celebrate 4th of july!! & i am so blessed to live in America! but when i think about how blessed i am, i can't help but think about all of those in this world who are not free... there are so many all around the world (& in america) who have suffered and are not living in freedom. not everyone has good food to eat & clean water to drink, some people are abused & damaged. some people are sick. people all over this world are hurting & while 4th of july is full of fun, there are more important things than just fireworks & parades. on this day {& every day} it is so important that we think about all of the ways that WE ARE BLESSED. if you are safe, you have food to eat, & you have freedom... BE THANKFUL, so so thankful. & pray for those who are suffering... remembering those who have sacrificed for our freedom. enjoy the day & celebrate, but remember why we are celebrating!!
& most important of all:
"where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom."
-2 Corinthians 3:17

i hope you all have a happy & safe 4th of july!
