Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Happy 4th of July!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays.
We're spending it with family and friends.

In our little town today
 there's a parade, carnival, barbecue, and of course fireworks tonight.

Hope your Independence Day is safe and happy!

Loads of Love,

Love your displays and of course all of the red touches around your home. I miss town parades...sounds like a fun day! Enjoy!

Your home is the poster child for Independence Day. LOVE IT! And the quote about the grass being green where you water it? So true and profound.

I hope you had a nice 4th. Your house looks so festive and fun and what could possibly beat a small town celebration!
