The country that you are raised in and the country that you choose to live in cannot help but have a strong effect on who you are. I was born, raised, and choose to live in the U.S.A. I don’t often consider myself particularly patriotic, but I do appreciate all of the rights, opportunities, and advantages that I have simply because of where I was born.
With each stride forward that our country makes in bringing civil rights and equality to ALL of the people in it, I feel more patriotic. In celebration of recent strides, I wore red, white & blue yesterday, on the 4th of July, with pride.
Each week this year I’m going to reflect on an aspect of myself and how it affects me as a sewist, crafter, or blogger. It may get deep, it may get emotional, it may get totally silly. It may be something I’m proud of, it may be something I cringe at, it may be something I aspire to. I may say a lot, I may say a little, I may ask questions, I may not answer them. I don’t quite know where the project will take me, but I’m excited about the journey. I’d be honored to have you join me on this journey. Chime in any time this year in my blog comments, on Twitter, Instagram, or your own blog. Join me in my theme for the week or make up your own.
