I love being an American and the freedom that comes with it. In Maine, we live for the 4th of July. It's really the only holiday that's hot enough to beach and barbecue! So why not go all out? Why not wear your stars and stripes bikini? Why not wrap yourself in red, white and blue and show your pride in this great Country? It's the one day that you can. Light the sparklers, watch the fireworks, wear your American flag T-shirt and for gosh sakes... be festive! Happy 4th of July, everyone.
