God Bless America!

I don't consider myself a patriotic person, although I do sometimes tear up a little upon hearing the National Anthem. Especially if it's being performed in a grand scale. But, I do think having these shoes might help me be a little more inspired to show my pride in the good ol' red white and blue:


I hope you have a happy 4th of July...no matter what shoes you are wearing. I will be in flip flops and sneakers all weekend, camping at Lassen Volcanic National Park.  It should be good, fun times with good, fun people.

I'm hoping to also spend some time reflecting on my gratitudes, and focusing on the good things that I have in my life -- friends, love, and laughter. Thank you America, for giving me the opportunity to focus on the blessings in my life and not having to worry about where my next meal is coming from or the war that it being fought outside my front door.

As I go into this new phase of things for myself, I feel that our country might be going in a new direction as well. Here's hoping to changes for everyone!
