Today we celebrate our Independence Day...



Today is Independence Day for the United States of America. And even if you are not an American, this post still pertains to you because America would not be the country that it is were not for our amazing allies. Thank you!
Now I have decided to show you guys what America means to me...

Being an American means... that stars and stripes fashion is always in.





America is... Baseball, preferably the NY Yankees.



America is... being able to fill yourself with trashy celebrity gossip, mainly the Hilton sisters and Lindsay Lohan.



America means... the first public performance of the National Anthem was held in a tavern.



The American Dream is... Michael Phelps winning 8 Olympic Gold medals in swimming.



America means... eating tons of junk food in one of our (who even knows the number) fast food joints.



America means... that our founding fathers are not just presidents and signers of major documents.





America is... HOPE.



I'll leave you with a google ad...

this is so clever; I view America differently in some respects
but I love that you threw in the Hilton's :)

I agree with Dana, I view America slightly differently in certain respects but I do love the post you put together and the maccas reference. Oh and the trashy celebs :)

Happy 4th!
