And We Hop!

This weekend, The Stamping Boutique is holding a Blog Hop for Independence Day in the United States and Canada Day in, well, Canada. :)  Those showing support for Canada (or just like the Moose) will be using the Moose, and those celebrating Independence Day will be using the Bald Eagle.  You *know* which one I have to show you today!
As a former Soldier, Independence Day is a proud day for me.  I chose to leave this simple, because it is truly simple - we do live in the Home of the Free, and for that, I am eternally grateful.  With the Army, I have been places where freedom was seen as a myth or some urban legend or a punch line to a satire.  I am truly blessed to live here in the Home of the Free.  Since I'm close to the end of the hop, I give you a little remembrance the while we live in the Home of the Free, Freedom is NOT free.





Now, Hop on over to Amanda's blog to complete the hop!  If you didn't start at the beginning, you'll want to head over to The Stamping Boutique Challenge Blog to begin your journey.  Have fun, and Happy Birthday, America!

Michelle!
When I think of what you and countless others have endured for our freedom, it fills my heart with gratitude!
As we celebrate our Independence with fireworks and hot dogs on the grill, I am thankful for all those who have served to make it possible!
THANK YOU!!!
