Red, White, and Boo Boo

“The essence of America-that which united us-is not ethnicity, or nationality, or religion. It is an idea-and what an idea it is: that you can come from humble circumstances and do great things. That it doesn’t matter where you came from, but where you are going.” ~Condoleezza Rice

With the 4th of July quickly approaching, I have been reflecting on my favorite Independence Day memories from both my own childhood growing up in a tiny beach town to those I am sharing with my own children. Below, I am sharing 7 of my favorites, saving the best for last!

· Watching a brick be removed from my front porch and replaced by a bicentennial brick on July 4, 1976

· My mom’s ambrosia-so gross but a great memory nonetheless

· Collecting, painting, and selling seashells

· Heading to the beach with family

· 4th of July parades

· Sparklers and Fireworks

Please share your favorite 4th of July picture and/or memory in the comments section and have an amazing and safe weekend! God Bless America.
