Happy Independence Day, America!!
While my relationship with my country is definitely complicated, and I come from a line of people who have a very troubled past with this country who damn sure didn’t know “freedom” until arguably a few decades ago (or last week for some), I won’t go there today.
Today I will celebrate my Americanness. Ish is complicated but I love my country and I want what is best for her. So today I wear my red swim suit, red tank, and blue shorts and am heading to the river to go tubing! I get to relax, float down a river and enjoy this beautiful day with my PDX buddies.
I also celebrate that today marks THREE DAYS TO THIRTY!! And I just bought a last minute ticket home to Cali to ring in 30 with my parents and brother and nephews who are visiting out of town. Can’t beat that happy happy day!!
Again, happy 4th to all my countrymen! Have a safe and happy celebration!
