Happy Independence Day

Polymer clay cane slices of the American Flag by The Blue Bottle Tree

Fifty stars and thirteen stripes are on our flag. Much symbolism there. Today Americans celebrate this most American of days. I will spend it with my English husband, Polish children, and later we’ll have fireworks with our Canadian friends. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing today, love your life, love those around you, and give a moment’s thought to how lucky you are to have the life you do. Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans!
