America the Beautiful

Freedom isn’t free… Thank you to the men and women of the Armed Forces who have served and sacrificed at home and around the world to keep us free.

Independence Day collage

We hope our US friends had a safe and happy Fourth of July and continue celebrating (and remembering) through the holiday weekend.

Wow, 237 years old. I’m sure our Founding Fathers would have been thrilled if they had known the fledgling nation they founded on blood, sweat, tears and a heap of courage, would still be going strong today.

What’s your favorite Fourth of July tradition? Did you start a new one this year?

The picture collage above showcases some of my favorite memories that come to mind when I think of America and Independence Day. What comes to mind for you?

Independence Day also brings to mind one of my favorite songs, God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood. I was fortunate enough to see Mr. Greenwood perform this iconic song live and it’s chilling. I still get goosebumps every time I hear it.

I’ll leave you with that beautiful song to enjoy your weekend. To our International friends, have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading! We get a little patriotic this time of year. 🙂
