Happy Independence Day

Independence day is one of my favorite holidays. I truly am proud to be an American. There is a lot of mess and I am rarely proud of our government, but that isn't what I am talking about.

I am proud of the people and the land. Our country is absolutely beautiful and there is so much to explore. You could spend your entire life discovering America and never get bored. And that land is filled with some of the most amazing, hard working, and beautiful people you will ever meet. All kinds of people with all kinds of views, but most of them only wanting to live healthy, happy, and free, in a place that they love. That is what I am proud of. 

These pictures might a little cliched' but I don't really care, I am feeling patriotic dang it.  Happy birthday 'Merica.
