because we are free...

posted on: 11.10.2012

To create.  To live.  To love.  To be.

It's funny how not funny things became, a bit, over the week with elections and such.  When I sat to look at this weekend, and the upcoming Veteran's Day holiday, well, I couldn't help but think how lucky we are, you know?  Because our country is one that is big enough for all of us.  Because we can each live out our own beautiful stories and still be a part of the greater one being told by our nation. 

Because we are free. 

Here's to the things that unite us. 



Happy Veteran's Day.

To all who have served our sweet country...

Thank you, 
From this little family.


live sweet,

And this.
Because behind every soldier there is often a family, sometimes a puppy and always a grateful nation.

    1. absolutely. Sometimes/ often, I forget how truly free we are... and then we all start disagreeing and I think, yep we are so very free even free to disagree, that's pretty darn free if you ask me. Thank God for those who protect that right.

  4. Yes, this week of all weeks we need to remember that what unites us is far stronger than what divides us.
