Independence Day has always been a bright and happy holiday in my mind.
It usually meant a family cookout. Watching fireworks at night; maybe in your pj's curled up on an adult lap. Handling your own sparklers when you're "a big kid".
But most of all, it's a time to celebrate the joy of freedom.
No one can quite say it like John Wayne does in his Republic speech for his movie The Alamo! Have you seen it? OH! you really should! It's one of my favorites. (But then again, I'd watch anything John Wayne.)
Lots of Sparkly Love from over here!
