Welcome to July! The days are long, the sun is hot (hopefully in a good way!), and the air is buzzing with the promise of summer adventures.

Whether you’re celebrating Independence Day (or not) with a bang (or a barbecue!), planning a relaxing beach getaway, or simply soaking up the sunshine in your backyard, I hope July brings you joy, laughter, and unforgettable moments.

Here are some wishes for a fantastic July

For the Adventurous: May your July be filled with exciting explorations, breathtaking views, and memories that will last a lifetime.

For the Relaxers: Unwind, recharge, and soak up the peacefulness of the summer months. Sweet dreams and lazy days are in your forecast!

For the Foodies: Indulge in all the delicious flavors of summer: fresh berries, sizzling barbecues, and refreshing ice cream cones—yum!

For the Family-Oriented: Cherish precious time spent with loved ones. Laughter, games, and heartfelt connections are what make summer truly special.

No matter how you spend your July, embrace the sunshine, savor the simple pleasures, and create memories that will warm you all year.

Here’s to a happy, healthy, and unforgettable July!

  1. Happy (Almost) July, Paula! We always love when a new month of Sweet Tea & Friends arrives and July is extra fun because we were so tickled to see our “Stars and Stripes” highlighted this month. THANK YOU! Wishing you and yours a blessed 4th of July ahead!

  2. Happy July! We’re looking forward to Independence Day, my middle son’s birthday, and lunch with a friend. Otherwise, the calendar is blessedly empty–a nice spot between busy months of June and August. I hope to catch up with some things and enjoy a slower pace this month.

  3. I love Independence Day and long summer days. I feel like summertime gives me a little of each of the 4 things you mentioned–relax, foodie, family, adventure. 🙂 Thank you for hosting this fantastic linkup! This time, I’ve left posts 36-42! 🙂 Have a great 4th of July!

  4. Paula, I can’t believe it’s already July. I think what I need to do this month is get organized and caught up. We’ll see how that goes! Thanks for sharing my post about my dad and peonies. 🙂

    Happy July, Paula! I hope to enjoy all four categories this month and wish the same for you!

  7. Paula, thanks for being the hostess with the most-est! And can you believe that we’re talking about July? I’m savoring every solitary moment in preparation for all those moments which will be filled with noise and laughter and boundless activity. I need one to do the other well.

  8. July didn’t used to excite me but this year is different. Maybe because my family has survived some crazy things this year, but also had the blessings of a graduation and new baby.So I’m planning to sail through the rest of the year. Thanks for the link up and to everyone who shares.

  9. Happy July, Paula! This year, my July will contain a family vacation to Galveston. We’ve never been before, so my wishes are for a fun-filled family time with no sunburns or squabbles!

  10. Happy July, and thank you for the party. The weather is cool and rains almost every day here in Wisconsin, so it hasn’t felt like summer yet. Praying we will get some hot weather soon so our veggies will grow.

    1. Happy July Amy. Oh I do hope for some rain so your vegetables grow too

  11. Hi, Paula. We had our July 4th Summer Party yesterday. We had perfect weather and delicious food! I hope you are doing well. I have joined the party with #87 and 88.
    Thank you for hosting this fun party. Have a wonderful week.
    Take care and best wishes.

    1. What a fun day for you guys.
