4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I think it is the American in me. I don’t have any annual family vacation plans that make it uber special, or particularly enjoy BBQ’s, or parades, but I am particular towards Fireworks.
There are many awesome pictures floating around today. Lots of Red, White & Blue. Lots of Flags and Eagles.
I picked this one, because it is us! It is a group of girls that are smiling and loving life! Was this you? Is this your mom? There is so much energy in this photo. They were having a great day at the beach!
I consider myself a true American. I appreciate the opportunity to be free and I use that opportunity everyday to create a new adventure. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to make a living doing what I love, and thank you for joining me!
As for Fireworks, they amaze me. I love the sound and the different designs that they make. I stare into the sky and appreciate those that know how to put these shows together. I like my fireworks far away so I can ohhh and ahhh, and enjoy the bigness. Not the “in camp” productions that make me fear that the forest or my trailer is going to burn down 🙂
Some of my favorite 4th of July fireworks were not the show itself, but the location. A few years ago I was able to enjoy them in a small town outside of Colorado Springs with my good friend JT Taylor and his daughter. I was in town for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb. One of my other favorite locations is on Skyline Blvd in the Bay Area, CA where on a clear night I can see the whole Bay and the shows that are happening for miles around.
I have been working on some new designs for I’m Not Just a Girl…one of them is a patriotic american flag design. I think I am almost there… What do you think? Is that a good idea?
