I was so stinking excited that I can’t even express my feelings to you all. I immediately haulted Viet so I could take a million pictures.
I mean, I love it here in France. I really loved Paris, and now that we’re in the South, being near the water just makes me so ding dang happy. But still, when I saw that flag, I almost teared up. This is the first year that I can remember that I’ve been out of the country for independence day.
And so–my friends in the states– please enjoy Independence day for me. Watch the fireworks, BBQ, laugh with your friends and families, and take note of all the things you love about living where you do and being an American. I’ll be thinking of why I’m proud to be from the US and dreaming of the fireworks (they’re my favorite).
Happy Independence Day!!
