Red, White and Blue

Happy 4th of July!

While I adore traveling and exploring the world, I feel so lucky and blessed to be a citizen of the United States. Here are a few reasons why I just love the USA:

  • East Coast beaches, all the way from Maine to Key West
  • gorgeous mountain ranges to hike and ski
  • freedom of the press
  • democracy
  • reality tv
  • do-it-yourself cutoff jean shorts
  • nautical stripes a la Jackie O
  • local farms
  • cajun cooking
  • Southern hospitality
  • New York City diversity
  • celebrating Thanksgiving with family

Red, white and blue flowers around town in Philadelphia:

Uh, well purple is kind-of like blue, isn’t it?

What do you love about the USA?
