Happy Birthday America!

I just love a good Birthday celebration, don't you?

We have so much to be happy and grateful for... So as we gather together with friends and loved ones on the beach, by the lake, in the mountains or by the pool... As we celebrate all things American, let's be appreciate for the thing that matters most, our freedom. With so much awfulness going on in the world let's take some time to bask ourselves in the glory of our independence and revel in the celebration of this momentous day.  

Here's to celebrations with fireworks and sparklers, burgers on the grill and skinny fries... With potato salads and fried chicken.... Blueberry pie a la mode, watermelon, ice cream... Here's to our flag flying proudly, hometown parades and marching bands, red, white and blue pinwheels, lemonade... Here's to all that we have and all that we've yet to achieve... Happy Birthday America, I hope this is your best year yet!
