June Triune Blog Train

As an ex-patriot (I hate that term - I am not an "ex" anything! I am still an American even if I lay my head down each night on foreign soil!), the 4th of July is bittersweet for me. It was always such an exciting day for me growing up, filled with family, fun, food, and fireworks! It makes me sad that most of the time my daughter doesn't get to experience that. Due to plenty of violence against Americans (yes, even in Europe!), I choose not to dress my half-American daughter in anything "American" unless we are staying at home. So the fourth generally passes by with little more than a quiet barbecue to mark it.

Last year was different, though. Last year we were in the states for Independence Day for the first time since Luna was born. We did it up in style, with a huge family party (family came from all over the states!), tons of food, a stars and stripes dress handmade by mama, and of course, her first fireworks (she liked them!). So many beautiful memories from that day!

Ok, ok, thank you for listening politely. Now its time for the freebie you came for. :) Here is the mini kit I used to create the simple layout I shared:
