Miss Independence

Today I am taking the day off to celebrate my freedoms.

Not really the patriotic type, but I can appreciate the vision of our forefathers, and the huge sacrifices made by so many throughout history to protect our freedom in this country. I often think about what it would be like to have been born in another country, and there are very few places other than here that I would have been able to achieve the lifestyle I currently enjoy, all on my own, as a single woman carving out her own little business and surviving on the profits. So for that, I am deeply grateful.
