Happy 4th of July
As Scotty and I prepare to celebrate one of my favorite holidays, I realized that since we’ve been married we’ve spent more 4ths outside our country than in it. Our first, 2005, was spent in Spain and Gibraltar, where the British border agent wryly wished us a “Happy Independence Day.” 2008 we were here in Edinburgh. Last year was in Paris and this year we’ll be here in Edinburgh. I love the 4th of July with its requisite parades, fireworks, cookouts, and family gatherings. We’re going to try and host a classic American cookout but the weather forecast is not looking promising. I wish each of my American readers a very happy day! Light off a firework for your expat friends.
