I have to admit that I use to take the Fourth of July for granted when we lived in the US, but now I am longing for that lazy weekend with all it’s American charm. Ten years outside the US and I am aching for the fireworks, the barbecue, the sweet tea, the American flag, and some strawberry shortcake, so today is all about Red White and Blue in honor of the the Fourth which I hope will inspire us all to bring a bit of the American spirit into our lives, no matter where we live!
It’s pretty hard not to feel nostalgic about a land that was created for life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness…
