Every year on the 4th of July I see this photo and I want to make them. Every year, I fail! We see thousands of Images each day that deal with yummy looking cooking recipes, pretty baked goods and fun cocktails. Even in the realm of design we see artistic pieces we want to recreate ourselves, pictures we want to take and frame or even product labels we want to design for that startup Brewery or Winery in town. It seems our WANT to do is much different than our TIME to do! With summer upon us in full force (I have missed you summer) do yourself a favor, take the necessary steps to ensure your life is not wasted on “should of-could of” regrets. Go out to a restaurant you have been wanting to try and order something crazy, try a different kind of wine or beer, call an old friend or meet up with a new one, or take that trip you have been wanting to take, either way, if you walk out of your comfort zone and leave all the excuses behind, you will find you have expanded your horizon if only a little bit but far greater than yesterday. In all this, remember who fought for our freedom to be able to make the choices at hand. Happy 4th of July, be safe, be happy and be thankful!
