Proud to Be an American!

Most of you probably know that America celebrates Independence Day on July 4th. So in honor of this country that I feel so blessed to live in...


A special THANKS to the men and women (and their families) who serve our country and fight for freedom. May we never take it for granted.

Happy Fourth of July, Leigh and Right On!

Great tribute to the troops and we all need to remember their sacrifices allow for the freedoms we *all* enjoy.

PS... as a naturalized citizen, I wanted to say thanks for sharing :)

Feeling a little nostalgic as an ex-pat. Guess I'll stick with some American blogging buddies today ;)

The spirit of July 4th was evident where I live. Flags and more flags everywhere - not to mention the block part we had.

Sorry it's late, but I hope you had an amazing day! Just a regular one for us, but there's never a wrong time to remember those sacrifices that are being made on our behalf.

Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
