Don’t Take Freedom For Granted!

I hope you realize how much our forefathers did to earn our freedom. I trust you thank those who STILL sacrifice for our freedom, whenever you get the chance.  This includes our local and state police.

I have never had to go hungry or worship in secret, I have never had a child taken from me, or lost one through serving our country. I had grandfathers, and greatgrandfather’s that fought, uncles and brother’s that did as well. Some came home, others did not. We cannot just sing a sweet song about our country and not REALLY consider the cost generations before us have made.

I think we have it too easy here in the states, in this place in history. I know, I know, what the heck Staci, what does FREEDOM have to do with fashion? Freedom has everthing to do with fashion. WHAT?, “she’s losing it”.

If it were not for freedom, I wouldn’t be free to run my own business, work from home, worship in the manner in which I do(ok, I’ll try to stay on track)but you see, we owe absolutely everything to those who’ve gone before us. My family can choose to live where we do, shop where we shop, vote for who we want in office. So many countries and people do not have these rights.

I just don’t even know where to start, but I know this, 32+ years ago a husband and wife founded Premier Designs so I could stay home with my children, so I could pay for the extras so I could help empower women all over the country. I have the ability to effect change here in my little corner of the world.

I am personally so thankful to the Men and Women of our armed services, and those state and local law enfourcement that give up so much. so we can be free. Not only do our men and women sacrifice, but their families do as well. I love the saying,

“All gave some, some gave all”


Next time you ride to the church, of your choice, or share dinner with your family, think about those who are seperated from there’s for you.  Thank them! You don’t not have to have a personal relationship with them to thank them for their sacrifice.

Ok, so maybe this post doesn’t have anything to do with fashion, this week and I am ok with that.

Thank you! to the Men and Women who tirelessly defend our borders, protect those in need, and those that cannot protect themselves.  May we never take for granted the freedoms we have in this country, but use the sacrfices of those passed to spur us on to the next level.   We offer you our gratitude and thanks for a job well done.

It is our right, NO our duty to persue those things that make us unique. This is our  tribute to those who’ve fought so hard for us.



I personally, need to remember all of these things.  I have the freedom to pursue my dreams and desires, let me NEVER take them for granted.


P.S. have you lost anyone defending our country, abroad or domestically? Are you personally, active or retired armed servicemen or law enforcement? Are you a spouse of someone in this line of work?  Consider this, my Thank You and my family’s Thank You!
