This year’s 4th of July festivities were so much fun! They were extra special this year because we celebrated in our first home and with close friends. I remember last summer being awesome, but this summer now that we’re settled into our living situation, are comfortable in our new city, have connected with friends and made new friends, it’s been even better! The first few months we were married were tough because it was a huge adjustment, we were in a new place, first time living together, and didn’t know a ton of people around us. It’s amazing how much can change in just one year 🙂
I decided I wanted to go all out for our 4th of July party, so I loaded up on some cheesy decorations and brainstormed ways to make our house explode with red, white, and blue. I’d say I was successful! Here are some of my favorites from our oh so joyous, patriotic get together.
