Happy 4th everyone! Hope you all enjoyed whatever festivities you attended.  We had a really low key day.  Justin’s next CPA exam is tomorrow.  He spent much of the day studying while I did some things around the house and went to the grocery store.  Our highlight of the day was we made a killer dinner.  Filet mignon, grilled zucchini, and an awesome quinoa salad.  Justin said it was the best meal he ever had at home! We will definitely have to do it again.

Tomorrow after Justin’s test we are heading to Michigan to his family’s lake cottage and to also spend a night in Saugatuck with my in-laws.  Vacation here we come!  Can’t wait.

I thought for my 4th of July post I would remind you all to take a moment and remember why we have our independence, because of all the men and women who have served and are continuing to serve our country.  We are more blessed than we can comprehend.  Remember to praise God for the freedom we have in the United States and also our freedom we have because of Christ dying on the cross for our sins.

Special thanks to my brother-in-law, Boo, as he is currently serving overseas right now.  We miss him tons and pray for him often. Today, we are especially thinking of him and all the hard work he is doing out there.  We can’t wait to see him back home, which won’t be until next year 😦  Thankfully we have tools like Skype to keep our family connected. Also, if we think it’s hot here, it’s about 130 degrees where Boo is! Wowee!

Here’s a few photos in rememberence of Boo and all he is doing for us.  We miss you and love you!
