4th of july 2017

Shortly after moving to Oxford two years ago we were told by our sweet neighbor that the annual Oxford 4th of July parade ran on the street right in front of our houses.  Though the first event was only weeks after we moved in, we began a parade and picnic party tradition that we plan to keep up until the end of our lives here on Wesley Street.

Friends from every different corners of our lives come in the morning, we all enjoy the parade together from the comfort of our front yard, and then we swim, eat, and fellowship well into the afternoon.   It is one of my favorite things and hope it is the same for the families who join us.

Everyone has usually gone on their way in time for our little family to grab a little quiet, and maybe a short nap, before heading to The Square to await Covington's fireworks display, which happens to be the largest one outside of Atlanta.  

Small southern towns, family traditions, celebrations that bring people together.  Just a few of my favorite things.
