Freedom

I’m up early on this special day, the Fourth of July. It’s Independence Day. For me it’s not just a day where I realize or even celebrate how much freedom I have in this country, but it’s a day that fills me with joy because of what it’s done for my family. Yes, it’s giving us liberty, but sometimes I don’t acknowledge the pursuit of happiness aspect of what of the United States has to offer. We are filled with some much happiness here. The main reason is because we are filled with opportunity. That’s a great a freedom to hold.

Thanks to this country and its Founding Father’s I am a first generation college graduate, I am a teacher, I am a sister, a daughter, a child of God, a girlfriend, and a blogger, all of this is based on the opportunities I was given. I suppose it doesn’t matter how I got here, who my parents are, and what they’ve done to be in here, (trust me, they have sacrificed A LOT) what’s important is that they could. Without question. That in itself is grand. And I salute being American every day.

Today on the blog, I wore this pretty white top from the Buckle. The boyfriend jeans had to make an appearance of course. And the bandana allowed me to incorporate red because for some reason I don’t own red like I thought I did.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Fourth, that many fireworks are popped, and that we let freedom ring. Today and everyday. As always.

Friday stroll

Yesterday it literally rained cats and dogs. We’ve been pretty blessed this year with the amount of rain Kansas has received. So there’s nothing to complain about.

My day was spent shopping at Target and TJMAXX. I’m excited to show you all some of the things I’ve picked up. I’m also going to try to be more creative with IG and possibly post a haul on my findings.

In the meantime I’m excited to blog about this top I picked up from Loft. I’ve been shopping there lately because I’m absolutely in love with their petite section. It’s amazing and figure forming. I mainly shop here for my teacher wardrobe, but I enjoy a top that is perfect for a Friday afternoon stroll.

Micah and I are heading to his buddy’s wedding up state. It’s gonna be a great weekend road trip con mi vida. Wishing you the best. See you Monday. As always.
