I love being a Lowes Creator. This month one of the themes we could choose from was Patriotic Projects.

I love the Fourth of July!!

When we moved into our neigborhood more than 10 years ago, we were surprised to find out that there was a HUGE hometown parade and pancake breakfast right around the corner.
