Happy 4th of July!

12:00 AM

As you're reading this I'm on my way to spend the holiday weekend at the beach with Paul.  I'm so glad I have this entire weekend off!  At one of my job we're only open on weekdays anyways, and my other job is closed until Monday!  Like I've mentioned before, I was in Italy last year for the 4th of July.  While I'm so thankful that I was able to study abroad, it just was NOT okay to be in another country for our Independence Day.  It felt so wrong that people were just walking around as if it were some other day.  I get that it was some other day for them, but I just really missed celebrating with my family and neighbors.  I want to wish everyone a happy independence day!  Go out there and shoot off fireworks and eat hot dogs and have a drink.  Celebrate however you want to celebrate!  Do me a favor and take a second to reflect on the history of our country.  It's a young history, but it's so important.  I am so thankful to every person who has ever helped make this country what it is today.  It may not be perfect, but I can't think of a single place that is and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
