Happy 4th of July!

July 4, 2016

Celebrating the 4th of July in Europe is of course not the same as when I am back “home” in the US. There are no fireworks or major celebrations but there is a bit of time to reflect on how my lifestyle has differed.

4_july_missguided_blue_Dress_fashion_bitemyfashion This is officially my second 4th of July in Switzerland. Last year we spent it on the lake with a group of former Swiss Embassy friends and expats. It was a great time but this year the 4th is on a Monday and I was not invited, nor did I look for any parties. It is any other day. I will take a special moment in my day to be thankful for my American citizenship, I will call friends and family to see how there day is going and I of course will have to wear a bit of blue!

All of these photos were taken in Nice and it is absolutely gorgeous there. Unlike Cannes (post here) the beach is rocky but just as gorgeous! IMG_3518 4_july_missguided_blue_Dress_fashion_bitemyfashion IMG_3482 IMG_3508 IMG_3506 Today I miss…

  • Barbecue food
  • Relaxing at the pool
  • Inside family jokes
  • All of the Patriotism

Let me know how you all spend the day!

I bought this dress by Missguided from Norsdstrom Rack for about $23 and paired it with my favorite summer shoes, Converse.

    The 4th was off the hook this year! So many fireworks and cops about! LOL! I’m sorry you couldn’t celebrate, but there is always next year!

    I also spent my 4th in Europe this year! Totally not the same and definitely missed the BBQs. Those pretty views did aid the pain a bit though:)
