While traveling to Prescott, AZ in July, i loved seeing how patriotic the town was. All over flags were waving, gazebos were decorated, store windows and even fire stations and historic buildings had flags draped throughout. I am a patriotic person year round, but I will say that seeing the displays during times like Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day makes things even more patriotic and joyful.
It's almost like Christmas. We love Christmas, but there is something so much more magical about the time of year when lights are twinkling, sleigh bells are ringing and snowflakes are glistening. Seeing all of the pride in this town during the month of July reminded me how much pride we truly take in our country, our veterans and all the men and women who served our country and even the ones who died for our freedom.
I think that is why I love my flag so much as well. I take great pride in my country, our freedom and the sacrifices so many made for that freedom. I don't just drink out of it on Independence Day, Memorial Day or Labor Day. It's a mug that my fingers hug year round and a way that I can show my love and pride as well.
