red white and blue

It’s a day for celebration.

Even though Bryan and the two younger kids are still in Florida….

i am spending some wonderful time with just Mason.

I’ve had five whole days with just him….and it’s been amazing.

We just made some cherry cheesecakes in a jar….

i know…


but i’m kind of getting my feet wet with this whole jar thing.

We made a bunch of these to take to our friends home later today for a good old fashioned bbq…

and hanging with our best friends.

Life is good.

Today i am thankful for living in a country in which we can be who we want to be.

What are you thankful for?


  1. Neat! Might have to steal…er, borrow these for later.
    Happy 4th to you and your family!

  2. Oh those look very yummy and oh so 4th of July!

    Enjoy the test of your special time with Mason!

  3. That was rest not test, darn smart phones are really not that smart when they change words on you……

  6. I’m thankful for so many things, but definitely thankful for having my family and us loving each other and that we live in an amazing house! 🙂 xx Happy 4th of July!

  7. I am thankful for my children and my husband (who has put up with me for 17 years today).

    The cherry cheesecakes look delish – I might have to try that. How about blackberry cobbler in a jar for your next endeavor?

  8. I am thankful for finally finding some great girls and to actually have good friends who are there!! Really there and having their kids to grow up and make the most awesome memories with!! Simple things make this the best!

    The jars look darling and I am certain taste amazing, So good you get one one one time with your boy. You learn a little more about who they are when you get to do this.

    I am thankful for friends during a time when I am going through a divorce. Male and female perspectives and encouragement is incredible. Just spending the fourth yesterday with some amazing people really lifted my spirits..did’nt think about the divorce once!!

  13. Thankful for so many things…of course, family matters top the list:)
