Stars over you

"I love you!"

See, I still remember this rhyme I learned when I was little.

So is July 4th for three or four reasons:

July 4th - was once our country's Independence Day too (we are the brightest copycat of America!)

July 4th was later became Filipino-American Friendship Day

July 4th - was the day my dear late parents got married.

July 4th - and all the -th days in our lives, we should be thankful!
Like appreciating someone's visit to our blogs. And I like your new header. Beautiful American flag indeed!

Cheers!

Cheered up a sad, grey winters day. Love the bright fuschia. Wish I could grow them but they always shrivel and die from greenfly and my lack of care....
