Let Your Flag Fly: 4th Of July Inspiration Found Here

I may have lived out of the country for the past few years, but I will always hold a special place in my heart for the 4th of July. It’s such a grand holiday full of tradition, flags, fun, and fireworks and I will admit to getting a little choked up every time The Star Spangled Banner is played (come on, admit it…you do too!).

I thought it might be fun to put together some patriotic inspirations to help you start getting excited too. Click thorough the gallery below for some of the best Americana and 4th of July inspiration around.

Happy almost birthday, America!
