Fourth of July Mani and Stamping With Mash Plates 27 and 49

While the fireworks don't excite me much anymore, (in my town they are the same every year.  It isn't like I live in a huge town where we are able to spend a gagillion dollars on our fireworks show) I will say that I love the Fourth of July.  I am so greatful to live in America.  I don't think that there is any greater gift than being able to worship the God of my choice, speak my mind about our failing President, or being able to go where I want and do what I want, when I want it.  You are free to be with who you want, be a hippie or not, hell, you can watch and read WHATEVER YOU WANT!!  For exmple: There are countries that do not allow people to read their Bibles.  Don't care about the Bible, that's cool, but how would you feel if you wern't allowed to look at Google!  Or the Government decided which websites you could or couldnot see.  How would you feel about that?  I don't have to agree with what everyone in my country is doing, I can voice my own opinion and not be punished, but the great thing is that everyone can make choices that suite themselves.  I don't really have much else to say so here is my first Fourth of July mani!
