“My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!”
Favorite holiday by far. [Insert story here of immigrant parents and how freaking amazing this country has been to our family, especially in context of having left the communist dictatorship that was Romania]. But yeah, I get to love on this country in all my red, white and blue cheesy attire, gawk at pretty lights exploding in the sky, and eat BBQ goodness. And it gives me the chance to blast this beauty of an apple pie from scratch on everyone, recipe courtesy of Ina.
