Our 4th of July Weekend

| | |

Hey friends, and happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful 4th! We really enjoyed our Independence Day weekend in rural/small-town Minnesota. ItΒ was filled with good conversation, great food, and we got to enjoy live music and canoeing (yes, there are awesome lakes out here among these fields!!) and fireworks! It was a blessing to have a lot of family members around or in town for the holiday. Here are some snapshots from our patriotic weekend:

How was your 4th? Did you have a full, crazy weekend or a more relaxing one? πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful start to your week!



    1. Thanks, Daisy! I bought the headband with my sis-in-law just a couple days before πŸ™‚ It was a relaxing 4th – hope you guys had a great holiday weekend!

  1. Love all these pics Hannah! Looks like you had a beautiful fourth! πŸ™‚

    Our day was really relaxing! It was rainy here, and we are still in the process of meeting people to BBQ with- so maybe next year it will be a little more exciting! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Amy! I’m sorry it rained where you’re at! But I’m glad it was relaxing and peaceful nonetheless. I love it when holidays don’t feel crazy – just peaceful. πŸ™‚ Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise that you get to spread out more fun get-togethers with friends over time now! πŸ™‚ Happy year-and-a-half anniversary, by the way! It is so fun that you got married on Jan. 4 – that’s my birthday! πŸ™‚

  2. This looks like the perfect weekend! The red white and blue tray of treats looks so good! I definitely could’ve gone for being on the water for the 4th πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Madison! The tray of berries was super fun and easy – we passed it around for dessert at one of our family picnics πŸ™‚ I got the idea from Country Living Magazine. It was fun being on the water! Although I grew up near lakes, I didn’t grow up with a boat so it’s fun that my father-in-law has a canoe! Hope you guys had a fun, special, and relaxing 4th! πŸ™‚
