In the U.S.A., we celebrate Independence Day on July 4th.  It’s a fun holiday full of cookouts and fireworks.  We also celebrate our liberty and way of life.  I’m grateful to live in a country which affords me the opportunities that I enjoy.  These opportunities include getting married to my husband (the love of my life), and writing and sharing content in this blog.  I hope that you have had the opportunity to make your dreams come true as well!

I want to thank you for being a reader of my blog.  Your support just by visiting means so much to me.  It’s because of you that I keep this blog going month after month, year after year.  It is my passion to bring you knowledge about weddings, etiquette, fashion, and beauty as well as to entertain you with an off-topic “fun” post on occasion.  Just knowing that I, hopefully, put a smile on people’s faces keeps me going!  Another thing that keeps me going is when I check my analytics and see that people from all around the world are visiting and reading my blog.  That puts a smile on my face.  In short, thank you for being the loyal reader that I know you to be!
