Celebrating this Fourth of July

No Gravatar

The month of July has multiple celebrations for me – the celebration of summer in full swing, the celebration of my work anniversary, (year nine for me at Chateau Montelena), but most importantly the celebration of our country.

As I go through my day to day life, I find that I sometimes take for granted what freedom we have here in the United States.   I mean, I get glimpses of the measures we take to have this freedom, like security lines at the airport, military skirmishes on the news but otherwise I am, like most people, in my own bubble and focused on our day to day lives.   The fact that I can do this and not worry about my safety makes me very grateful.  This luxury is part of Freedom.

I am extremely grateful to live in this country and am thankful for the women and men who continue to fight for our freedom.   During this Fourth of July, I will be raising a glass in honor.

Happy Independence Day, America!
