While the calendar says July 4th, we know it truly is Independence Day. It’s a national holiday that oozes with patriotic pride and the taste of a backyard barbecue. We think of holidays at home being focused on Christmas or Thanksgiving, but for me July 4th is one of those holidays too.

You may be able to relate to the fact that home is much more than just the place where you rest your head. It’s where you spend time with family and friends, where you enjoy some of life’s greatest moments and escape from the daily grind. I’ve spent every July 4th since 1960 with my family here in the Ft. Pierce area.

I enjoy visiting the homes of my friends and family because no two are alike, but the times spent at each of them produces the same result: great memories. From outings with our daughter, to days on the beach on Hutchinson Island, to amazing meals and desserts, all these great memories were made because of the homes they were created in.

As I flipped through some old photos of the last few Independence Day vacations, I didn’t see a single landmark, tourist attraction or notable locale showcased in any of our family pics. Instead I saw moments in the backyard, kitchen and even the driveway.

I love telling people that this year I’m spending my 4th of July right here at home in St. Lucie County. The reaction is always the same…”Why?” My reply is consistent, “It is the only place that is home.”  This year we are planning on laying claim to our favorite “spot” in Downtown Ft. Pierce for the best view of the Air National Guard Band of the South as the play at 6:00 pm.  After that – we look forward with great anticipation to the 9:00 pm fireworks, an annual tradition at Marina Square in Beautiful Downtown Ft. Pierce!

While we celebrate our independence on the Treasure Coast and in relaxing conditions, we have to stop and remember all those who provided this freedom that we so enjoy. Hundreds of thousands of American soldiers won’t be in their homes this July 4th celebrating with family and friends. Instead, they’ll be shoulder to shoulder in a foreign country with some of the greatest men & women our country has produced protecting our freedoms. Take a moment, not just today, but every day to be thankful for what our military does to make our enjoyment of home possible.

Whether you're buying or selling your home, please call me at 772-359-7706 and let me put my 16 years of trusted knowledge and experience to work for you!  Happy Independence Day from all of us at Coldwell Banker Paradise!
