friday, i'm in love.


veterans day.

a day that i am feeling especially grateful.

sometimes i pinch myself when i really stop and reflect on all that i am blessed with.

i live in america,
the greatest nation on earth.
men and women have fought and are still fighting for my freedom.
and today, i thank them.
i honor them.

i love my country and i am not ashamed to admit 
that every time i hear our national anthem
 and see the stars and stripes billowing in the breeze,
i get a little emotional.

i am proud to be an american.
and i wouldn't have this life that i love so very much
without those who have sacrificed and even given their lives defending my freedom.

and so today, 
i simply say...

thank you.
