Happy Fourth of July!

This is one of my favorite holidays because it oozes with summertime fun and patriotism. This vintage image reminds me of my grandfather who came to America from Denmark in the early 1900's. He was so proud when he and my grandmother took the oath to become citizens of the United States. Every year my grandparents would take my mother and her two older sisters to watch the neighborhood 4th of July parade. He made sure that each of them was carrying a small America flag to wave. He loved the flag because it reminded him of how fortunate they were to be a part of this great country! Let's all take a moment sometime today to remind ourselves just how lucky we are too!
