HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY Everyone!!!!
Hello to all my friends, family and all... I'm sorry I won't be there with you all to celebrate this grand day in HISTORY... It's my second 4th of July in France!! No fireworks for me this year.. but I do have a grand ol' picnic American style lined up tomorrow in the park... NO RAIN, please!!! I can't wait.. I'm looking forward to sharing the days with friends and also with many new people whom I haven't yet met, but looking very forward to meeting!! Being an American is something very important to me, especially now that I live abroad. Since I have lived in France (two years in August), I realized something about living in America... That Americans really LOVEEEEEEE to PARTTTYYYY!!! Yep, that's me!!! I don't mean get drunk and make a fool of yourself party... but I mean... "PARTY" in the sense of inviting people together to have good food and conversations and to have a fun time!! I think Americans are always looking for any occasion to party.. That's probably why there are so many holidays!!! Yay.. for three day weekends!! YAHHHHHOOOO!!!! HAPPY 4th of July!!!!
