Encouraging Hearts and Home: Good-bye June!

It's so hard for me to believe that June is over and tomorrow is July already! We have a huge family cookout for the 4th of July and we're hoping for good weather this year.   In honor of America's Independence Day all my features this week are all about the red, white and blue! 

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!
