Independence Day 2019

Can you even believe it’s already July 9th?  

I saw a girlfriend post this on FB and it couldn’t be more true!
That’s often times where my mind goes.

Here’s a little recap of our 4th of July.  It really is one of my favorite holidays especially when it’s spent in McKinney.
Every year we make our way to the 4th of July Parade in downtown McKinney.  It’s events like this that make our big town feel really small.  When you’re seeing people you know lining both sides of the street it gives our city a very small-town feel that we absolutely love.

This year was no different…we always meet friends on the square {Hello, Kensington} to watch the parade and we do our best to dress all RED, WHITE, and BLUE!

This year I showed up twinning my girlfriend, Brittany.  πŸ™‚

Lots of you asked about our top via Instagram.  We bought ours at this boutique.  I think if you call or message them, they’ll ship to you.  I’m wearing a small.

I also found it at this shop online.

This crew is looking PARADE READY!

 Always fun getting to hang out with this group of girls!

Sweet Karla is one of my FAVORITES!

Love these ladies!

Britty was in her element.  πŸ™‚

This was our girly just two years ago after being home for about six weeks.

These girlies are such sweet friends.

Hadley and Britt are just a month apart.  They’re playing soccer this fall.  Can you imagine how that will go?  hahahaha!

Sweet friends!

 Someone was a fan of that Ring Pop…can you tell?

{Photo cred…goes to Brooke!  Thank you, friend!}


These pictures melt my heart.

 What a CREW!

I got to chit chat with these mamas for a long time!  So good to catch up!  {Do you recognize Amanda?!}

Just me and my girl.

Bowen is a FAN of the parade!

Such a successful morning!  

We followed it up in the BEST way.  We headed to the Shulls for a framily afternoon swim session complete with a yummy dinner and then FIREWORKS!!

We’re so thankful to live in America, the land of the free because of the brave.  

Hope you and yours had a great July 4th!
