Happy 4th!

Happy Fourth of July!  This is one of my favorite holidays, probably because I spend every 4th of July with my family at our cottage on Lake Superior.  This year, I am sadly still in Illinois while my parents and sister celebrate in Wisconsin because our friend is getting married on Friday.  But, this morning I got to walk around our little farm and think about how great it is to live in a country where two 25 year-old kids from the city can own their own farm and some sheep, work at jobs we love, and shoot off fireworks over a soybean field to celebrate.

Joey's latest project.  And yes, he saw something like this in a movie where the people lived in a commune.

So that's a little slice of my American pie.  Can't believe it's been three years since Joey proposed on the 4th on our dock on Lake Superior, under the glow of the moon.
