Karl Lagefeld once paid homage to America by featuring stars and stripes in his Spring 2008 collection.
I send my apologies for my lack of posts recently, I took the weekend off and enjoyed the uncharacteristically good weather here in the Pacific Northwest. Somehow the weather gods were on our side this year and decided to put off the overcast skies and drizzly rain until today, which is just fine with me because the fourth was just lovely.
Fourth of July always reminds me of how much I really do love this country although sometimes it may seem otherwise. Nothing beats the good 'ole family barbeque with hamburgers (veggie burgers for me), watermelon, corn on the cob, and baked beans. While our classicly American meals may seem to be an oddball mix, our classic principles always make sense. We are a nation built on strong personalities and strong beliefs, and I am always proud to be a part of that.
I hope everyone dressed in their greatest red, white, and blue ensembles and enjoyed a good parade and some fireworks, after all it only happens once a year.
