On July 4, 1776, there were thirteen colonies who declared their independence from Great Britain. This event is what eventually led to the formation of the United States. Independence Day is not just about eating good food, drinking, making ice cream, and fireworks. It’s a day to appreciate our feedom and all that we have here in America.

To celebrate the 4th my boyfriend and I decided we were going to try to go to Pismo Beach to watch the fireworks. We arrived there around 8pm and thought that would give us plenty of time to find parking and get where we wanted to be. Well, was I wrong! Everyone in the world was at Pismo Beach! It took us about an hour to find parking, but eventually we did and it was well worth it because we had an amazing view. Here is a video and some pictures of the fireworks over the beach:
Some of the things I am grateful on this day is my freedom to follow Christ, my freedom to vote, speak my mind, and work. All these things are things that I don’t realize are such a privilege to be able to do.
What are some things you are grateful for?
Happy 4th of July everyone!
