A very Happy July 4th to all you darlings here in the States. Though we live in a country that is far from perfect, it is still a blessing to live in one that is free. Have a fun day picnicking, barbecuing, baseball gaming, firework gazing, and celebrating with friends and family.

  25. i think you have one of the most refreshing styles i've ever seen. the thing about you i love the best is that smile of yours!!! even through a still image it reflects out such a positive force and lights up my usually bland screen. you are so beautiful, wild and free Marisa!

    thank you for the guest post love, i was shocked with the part about you being challenged to exude some of those things. let me say, if this is how you feel, it does not show. to me you are every bit of every kind word you said to me and more!

    hope your celebrations included lots of those yummies you mentioned. ♥
