July Fourth Has Never Felt Better


The fourth of July has always been my favorite holiday, and it probably always will be. The food, the fireworks and the awesome people I get to spend time around every July 4th just always leaves me with some of the best memories.
This 4th of July is especially special for me, this year, because I didn’t think I would be back in the country for it. BUUUUUUT plans change and I am SO glad/happy/excited to be back in the US, right now! After living abroad for almost a year I can honestly say that I feel more patriotic right now than I’ve probably felt in my life. God bless America. We sure as hell have problems, but it’s good to be back home.

Here’s what I was up to the last few years of 4th of July:
2014: I was pulling an all-nighter so I could hop on a plane to San Francisco!

2013: I went to an anarchist Fourth of July party. We listened to Sweet Home Alabama on blast and ate large quantities of McDonalds.

2011: I was living on the beaches of Southern California and wishing for Seattle rain…or just fully clothed people.

2010: Fresh out of college, I decided to change the spelling of my name and all of my friends lost their minds about it.
