happy independence day!

Happy 4th of July to all of my american readers :)  My most favorite part of this holiday is the sparklers.  It always has been, even when I was a kid.  I have two boxes of them to take with me tonight to the fireworks display.
This will be Adam and I's third year in a row going to the local 4th of July celebration tonight :)
Fireworks, are seriously like magic.   I don't understand how they work and honestly, I don't ever want to know.  The magic aspect of it is what makes it so special :)
So, in honor of this magical holiday, here are some sparkler inspired photos from weheartit.

Have a very magic-filled night :)  I'll be back later with your journal prompt.


  1. Aww, I wish I had joined the 30 day journal challenge :'( It looks like it would have been fun! Now it's too late; you guys are almost done :( Will you be having another one?!

  2. I agree! Have another one sometime! :) Happy 4th! :)

  3. They are very magical indeed.. the thing I love about sparklers is that it is like your own private mini fireworks display :) Happy 4th of July!

  4. Happy Independence Day!

    Great Journal prompt 22!
    I'm still incredibly behind BUT THANK GOODNESS I am holidays now, and will be catching up on all the prompts I haven't done yet. They're all written down in note-point form in pencil on their respective pages, they just don't look pretty!
    I'll hopefully be up to date for Prompt 24!

    I love sparklers! They are simply stunning and it makes me so happy whenever I see people writing messages with them. That octopus is simply brilliant!

    I miss the fourth of July so much. Actually, I just miss Oregon in general. The whole town would come down to the main road (just off my street) and we'd have street parties and picnics at the local highschool. I miss picking crab-apples off trees and riding in a wagon with my cousins. And the chalk drawings on our street that lasted until the end of summer every-year...

    Enjoy every second while you can, you never know when you won't be able to celebrate your favorite holiday anymore :)

    I love you!

  6. love your pictures!! they're perfect!!
