I used a new to me action from The CoffeeShop Blog called Velvet Truffle. I kinda love it. Especially for these beach pics. And it's free! You can download it here.

If you missed my patriotic download or chalk recipe, click here.

You can also snag my favorite 4th of July ideas over at my latest addiction, pinterest.

I sure do love my nieces! And aren't they just adorable? We celebrated the 4th in the Outer Banks, NC with the fam for my reunion. We live so far apart we rarely get together, so my kids enjoyed the week with their cousins. And by the way, I've lost count but I think there are 30 cousins now. Plenty of fun and chaos to go around.

To my brother-in-law and all military servicemen and women who are far away risking their lives for my freedoms, thank you. I am beyond grateful to be a beneficiary of such selfless acts.

  4. These are great, Lish! Very Americana! Just a couple of girls running carefree on the beach, enjoying the freedom that life as American citizens affords them.
