happy fourth of july 2020

it was a different and happy fourth! i still can’t quite grasp that it’s really even july and time has just kept moving through this crazy year, but we felt lucky to be able to spend the holiday with family and less big events – simple is sometimes the very best! we hiked, went down to chase’s sister’s for breakfast and a mini cousin parade through her circle, then came back and swam at our cute neighbor’s house complete with a soft serve ice cream machine. we relaxed and napped the girls in the afternoon, then had a fun BBQ with delicious food, ending the night watching the new hamilton movie release on an outdoor screen in my parent’s backyard. loved it all! i am grateful for a country based on such good principles that we get to continue to strive to fully meet. i hope this year is bringing us all closer to our full potential individually and collectively! 🇺🇸❤️✨
