Some 4th of July Gratitude

Last night I found myself in serious need of a gratitude reality check. I could not seem to stop pouring myself a gigantic glass of #whitewhine. Poor me, I have to send another piece of paper to a lawyer about buying condo. Oh no! Where will I register for my wedding? That stats class for my PhD program sure is inconvenient.

Seriously, who brought her? Oh wait, I did.

These are beautiful problems to have, people. Bea-u-ti-ful. Once I got over myself, I've been thinking about lots of other stuff to be grateful for. With the 4th of July coming up, it makes me think about how lucky I've been to see so much of America. And what a beautiful, diverse country it is. It's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but we're so lucky to have it.

How's that for some holiday gratitude?

Here's some of my favorite pictures from around the US from the last year. Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
