Happy Independence Day!

It’s the fourth of July, and today we celebrate the birthday of America and our independence from Great Britain.

Is there anything more patriotic in the realm of clothing that isn’t over the top than wearing a Grunt Style shirt? (I love their tees; they fit better than any other that I have, so much so that I have zero desire to order from another veteran owned/supporting company for fear of the shirts not fitting as good as Grunt Style’s; my only complaint about Grunt Style is that too many of their shirts are black… I have way too many black shirts.)

I don’t think so.

This was taken yesterday evening after shooting some basketball outside with Dana; she said the sweat stain on my shirt looked like a weird Batman logo!

I have more posts coming in the next few days. I was lucky to have spent the weekend with family (including hers, which is pretty much mine by default). We grilled burgers, sausages along with peppers and onions on Saturday and we smoked on Sunday.

The best part about it all was being together and enjoying each other’s company.

That is lost on many these days. As somebody who has been through more loss than most people through 26 years of life, I understand that it’s easy to become either cynical or lost on the fact that times are not timeless and that nobody is going to be here forever. However, living in the moment, laughing and having a good time with each other, with our loved ones… I don’t think anything is better. I’m happy to have done that this past weekend, and I’m grateful to live in a country like America, one that has afforded me the freedom to have made memories over the weekend.

To everybody reading, I hope you have a great, safe Fourth of July.
