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.
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! 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.
