the fourth of july has always been my favorite holiday. while i am especially proud to be an american on this day, it also tells me that summer is really here. and that feeling is one of my most favorites in the world. it tells me i’ve had enough time to get settled into the routine of summer with just enough time to savor the rest.
i forgot all about that after my boyfriend and i were broken up for a short while this time last year. to finally be able to share a beautiful fourth of july with him, to clear the damaged air this time of year has been suffocating in, and to remember what summer really feels like created a sense of euphoria exactly as i started to need it most.
happy independence to all, and to all a good night.
