Stars & Stripes: Happy Birthday America!!

5 years ago

I'd like to think of myself as a patriotic person.  I live in an amazing country where I have the freedom to be whomever I wish to be, speak what I want to speak, and do as I want to do.  While we are still growing as a nation & have many issues that need to be fixed (laws, rights & all), I am so blessed to live in a place where we personal freedoms (which we tend to be take lightly).  Thanks to our fore fathers, and the many American soldiers (who've sacrificed/and still sacrificing), I live in a nation where anything is possible, "The American Dream".  On that note, I'd like to wish America Happy Birthday, and I'm so proud to be an American!!

 

I hope all my friends are having a great Fourth of July, celebrations and all!  I'll be at the lake with friends, Donna & Jimmy (and their family).  They are the best!!  What will you be doing to celebrate?  Any traditions that you will be keeping to celebrate?  Enjoy these hodge podge of photos that are Americana!
