Happy 4th of July from our little family!
We’re apart this year, with Ben flying out to California tomorrow morning and me down in Texas for the #mcknightfest. I’m wishing Ben were with all of us down here in Texas but there is hardly a quiet minute to do much of missing. With dozens of cousins, plenty of pools, and gorgeous 90 degree weather, its a party (but it’s always a party with the McKnights).
This weekend I’m grateful for family, and for this wonderful country we live in. I didn’t always call it home, and after growing up in Tokyo, it wasn’t exactly love at first site. But I have learned to love this great nation, what it stands for, and the freedom it affords us. I may love traveling and a piece of me may always be in Japan, but the U.S. has my heart and I’m so proud to be an American.
Happy Independence Day!
Have a safe and fun fourth!
