Happy 4th of July!

Today I just wanted to stop in and wish you a happy holiday weekend!

We are heading out “glamping” (glamorous camping) lol. I didn’t grow up camping as a family (I went with friends a few times), so this will be a new experience. Especially with a 2 year old! If you have any last minute camping tips, be sure to send them my way today!

We’re meeting up with some military friends who live in a different city, so we’re really excited to catch up with them! P will have a ton of fun playing with their kiddos too.

I’m so thankful to be on shore duty. We have missed a lot of holidays during deployments, so we’re thrilled to be together this time. I know many of you are not with your loved ones, so know that I’m thinking of you!

I’ll pray that you can have an enjoyable and special weekend despite the difficulty of being apart.

As always on patriotic holidays, I want to pause and say how much I appreciate living in this country and the freedoms we have.

How special and unique it is that we can be free to speak about and live out our beliefs, whatever they may be. We are truly blessed! I’m thankful for our military members and their families who help keep those freedoms a reality.

So what are you up to this weekend? It’s not too late to make fun plans, even if it’s just to go watch fireworks.

I’ll probably be sharing a few pics on Instagram, so be sure to follow me there @heathergoffrier

Happy Independence Day!

XOXO,
Heather
