If you live in the States, you are probably preparing for a long, hot Saturday filled with grilled meat [or veggie burgers] and lots of fireworks! Corny as it might sound, right now I am just feeling very grateful for my home and the opportunities and liberties I've been given.
I kinda-sorta really like you, America. And here are a few reasons why:
♥ Levis, Coca-Cola, and cowboy boots.
♥ Diners and greasy-spoons.
♥ Route 66 [I'm lucky enough to live right on the longest remaining strip of Route 66 in the U.S!].
♥ The plethora of swimming pools.
♥ Grilling outside with family and friends.
♥ The abundance of hilarious political humor.
♥ Elvis, Michael Jackson, and Patsy Cline.
♥Cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and french fries.
♥ Wide, open spaces.
♥ Fiery pink sunsets.
♥ Cicada songs.
♥ Buffalo and Prairie Dogs.
♥ And lastly [probably because I am feeling very heart-sore for Iran right now], I feel really appreciative of the freedom we share to say whatever the heck we darn well please and change things when we are truly fed up!
Happy 4th of July, and I wish everyone a wonderful weekend!!
