On the 4th…

We spent our 4th of July evening grilling, drinking good beer and watching fireworks:

During the national anthem before the fireworks, we stood, and I put my hand over my heart. I was surprised to see most of the people surrounding me didn’t do the same. Of course there are good and bad things about every country, but when it comes down to it, I am incredibly grateful to be an American, and I’m grateful to be free. I was glad to celebrate the holiday in my own country, and to take a moment–hand over heart–to appreciate being home.

By the way, aren’t Wish Lanterns beautiful? I think they’re so romantic!
