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!!!!

Happy Fourth! Thanks so much for posting all of the America stuff, I've felt like a fish out of water all day! Wearing red, white and blue and trying to not feel so far away from home.

See you tomorrow!
