Friday Finds #184

Summer Holiday Weekend

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

The 4th of July weekend sure is a special one, don’t you agree? Not only do we get to celebrate the official birth of our nation, but being only two weeks into Summer, it’s the long holiday weekend that officially kicks off the season.

Let’s be mindful of taking precious time for rest and fun with our families while also meditating on the world around us – both remembering our history and finding our future through what happens in the present – the good, bad, and the ugly.

Kind of like a marriage, LOL. 🙂

Have a great weekend!
