Flashback Summer: Keep Your Eye on the Grand Ol' Flag!

Here is my last patriotic outfit for the 4th of July/ American Independence day!
(Just a side note, Americans pretty much always say the month first then the date, as in "July fifth".  Except with the 4th of July.... Tradition, I suppose?)

I'll be celebrating the day in the pretty typical American way.  Good food, good friends and family, sweet iced tea, swimming, and fireworks.  We'll think about what this whole idea of American freedom really means, what it has cost, and how it applies to us today.  Hopefully people will also consider how to protect it and the other values America has held dear from its conception.

One of my family's traditions is to watch James Cagney in "Yankee Doodle Dandy", but, alas, I don't have it here.  Very sad.  But it's the PERFECT 4th of July movie, so someone watch it!  Here are a couple clips:




Also, sometime today I should have a guest post on Lovebirds Vintage you guys may wish to check out!
