Let the partying begin. This year, Independence Day falls on a Saturday. This means an extended weekend for most workers, whether it be in the form of a free Friday or the following Monday. What are you doing to celebrate July 4th?
I am starting off with some great music. I always need a soundtrack to my life, so recognizing one of the most celebrated holidays shouldn't be any different. Below I have picked 4 songs. They all have a great message, are performed by great artists, and have a common theme...
Martina McBride ~ Independence Day
Ne-Yo ~ Miss Independent
Destiny's Child ~ Independent Women
Kelly Clarkson ~ Miss Independent
While you pour some mustard and ketchup on your hotdog/burger, listen to some great music and think about all the things in life that we should be thankful for. Let FREEDOM ring!
