I've neglected doing anything in my art journal for too long so I decided to do an entry every day. So far, so good!

The majority of the afternoon was spent with my mom's side of the family. We played board games, ate too many brownies and drank blue holiday themed Kool-aid.

Red, White and Blue Dresses from Eloise Edition

By coincidence my older sister and I wore white and blue dresses so naturally, we made my younger sister wear red. Go USA. 

We were actually slightly late for church, so we had to walk in front of everyone in our patriotic church outfits which was a little embarrassing. 

Red, White and Blue with Our Dog

We attempted to take some cute pictures with our pup and you can see how well that went. He was not in the American spirit to say the least. 

Sunday Lunch at McAlister's
We ate lunch at McAlister's and as always I got the Sweet Chipotle Chicken. You should give it a shot. It's good stuff.

See my 4th of July post over on the Instagram.

We spent the holiday with my Dad's family visiting and eating sandwiches. It rained on and off all day but it was still a fun day of family and food.
4th of July Top from Eloise Edition
My shorts are from Forever 21, but I mean they're pretty basic so you can find some blue jean shorts just about any place.

Good old high-tops, well worn and well loved.

4th of July Cupcake from Eloise Edition
I had a cupcake. It was a good cupcake. I enjoyed the cupcake. Freedom tastes sweet.

I know with the upcoming election and different economic and social issues, it can feel like our country is headed in the wrong direction but America still has an unimaginable amount of good going on for it. I am beyond blessed to be a part of a country where change, growth, freedom, liberty, individuality and love are ideals that are strongly established and celebrated. I'm so thankful for the courageous individuals who built our nation from the ground up and for those who continue fighting to insure the right of freedom.

Thanks for reading! How did you spend your long weekend of freedom? Let me know in the comments!
