July 4th is one of my favorite American holidays. I think I am most attracted to the sense of community that it inspires. It’s a holiday where people like to be together. I hope all of my American friends enjoyed celebrating our country’s independence.
I can remember back to our years in Laos. There we lived amongst a close-knit group of international expats. Each year we would host a big picnic where we would invite Americans and our “allies,” which meant all our other awesome friends from around the globe.
Boom!…yes it was a little loud, but how else would you end the day than with fireworks?! Enjoy Wordless Wednesday everyone.

Hi Shellie, Wow – Wednesdays Heartsie party was awesome! So many great posts, I especially enjoyed reading about your 4th of July. It poured rain here in Tampa, they eventually got fireworks off but it was very late so we decided to stay home. A first for us. We were surprised how much happens in our own neighborhood! We ended up seeing quite a show after all.
Kindest Regards, with a smile from Tampa, Carlyn 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, Carlyn! I am really enjoying my “Tampa time”!
Looks like a lovely night of celebrations! Happy 4th of July =)
We did! Thanks Merlinda.
Great article, Shellie. I love the 4th, too!
