Red, White & YOU


+Swag Giveaway

Welcome to Baxtron{Life}!
I'm Courtney.
I'm so happy you've come to party with me today!
Allow me to introduce you to my beautiful family: 
Hubs = Jerry & Daughter = Zion
Manhattan, yep.
And despite feeling totally crazy for living in such a place,
it's hard to imagine my life anywhere else!
Baxtron{Life} is a place where I share my heart &
the things that I love and that inspire me;
it's a place where I connect with my freest thoughts &
expose pieces of the pain I've experienced,
but even more so, 
it is truly a place where I have met the most amazing people -
people like YOU.

Thank you for visiting!
&
Enjoy the party (and the Holiday)
&
And of course a little bit of Red, White & Blue!
1. Toddler Bathing Suit, 2. Nautica for the Hubs, 3. Classic Beauty, 4. Nautical Nails,

    Yeah, I'm #61 in the link-up!!!! I could possibly be the most boring person on the planet when it comes to the fourth of July. Husband has the week off and he's been working his butt off the past few weeks so he's tired and ready for a break. If I were back home in Kentucky with my family, we'd be loungin' by the pool, sippin' drinks, and raisin' hell. Instead, I'll be staying cool in the a/c relaxin' with the Hubs.

    xo,
