It’s safe to say our 4th involved basking in the sunshine, time spent with family, and of course fireworks. While I’ve never considered myself much of a patriotic person, your perspective changes when you have children. You find yourself displaying a flag and having that conversation of what it means to be an American. Ask Landyn, and she will tell you we were celebrating our countries “Happy Day”. And celebrate we did.
Most of all though, becoming a parent comes with a desire to create tradition. I have fond memories of my childhood spent on the lake for the 4th of July. While I am busy picking up the pieces of the past few years, I hope to continue creating those memories for Landyn. I want to give her a foundation where she to can remember what matters most in life…family, friends, creating memories.
How did you spend your 4th?
