Old glory flying in the air and the colors of red, white and blue is seen all down the streets where I live and the stores I’ve been going to. I am so blessed to be an American and what it stands for.
We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, and that is the day we, as Americans, used as our celebration date.
We actually didn’t celebrate it as a holiday until about 100 years later when Congress declared July 4th, Christmas and other holidays.

I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
