Happy Fourth of July! A personal post

Wishing you, all my readers, a very happy (and safe!) Fourth of July!


My family – minus yours truly who is taking the photo. #momlife, right? 😉

My husband and I started dating July 4, 2002 so obviously it’s our favorite holiday. We travel to northern Iowa every July with our family to the lake house. We boat, swim, eat good food and do all the amazing things the quaint lake town has to offer. Of course, watching incredible fireworks from all around the lake tops off our 4th of July every year.



Getting festive!

We typically vacation for a week at the lake house. Our wedding anniversary is July 7th (11 years this year!) and our ‘engagement anniversary’ is July 1st. So, we have a few good reasons to celebrate the first week of July! 🙂 I’m so happy we can share this lake tradition and celebrate it all with our kids.


The 11th year anniversary gift is steel. Steel is known for its durability and strength. If you follow me on Instagram at Sweet Harper Designs, stop by to see what we decided for our 11th year gift. Hint: It has nothing to do with steel 😉
