Happy Independence Day!

Wreath I fashioned for our home's front door...

Happy July 4th (to those in the United States, "Happy Independence Day")!  Thought I’d share a few pics from my home flower garden.  Decidedly, there is a patriotic theme throughout--making it Independence Day appropriate! To view a few ways I decorated indoors for this special holiday, check out this past post.

Challenging myself to come up with themes (for decorating and dressing) is not only fun—it’s a great way to exercise my creativity muscles a bit more.  Do you find this to be true as well?

Speaking of what I'll wear... I'm thinking of donning this for a dinner date out with Mark this evening in Michigan.  It's my favorite maxi dress paired with a sleeveless jean jacket I bought for my recent trip to New England.  It may be too cool (outdoors) for short sleeves, though (sigh).  Nevertheless, what do you think? I could pair this outfit with heels or sandals... Maybe don a straw hat, too?

Wishing you a wonderful Fourth of July—wherever you are reading this from! 

Joy & peace! T.
