I think the longer I live abroad, the more sentimentally American I feel! I am having a wonderful adventure here in Asia but the holiday this year has me so nostalgic for everything American. Last 4th, my husband and I were in Bejing and this year we are in Phuket, Thailand. Not that I am complaining about our fantastic chances to travel - just thinking of all you at home!
Hope your day is filled with family, friends, and BBQ cookouts - Happy Birthday America!
