1st Independence Day as a U.S. citizen

I've commemorated Independence Day for the 20-plus years I've lived in the United States but today is the first time I'm celebrating as an official American citizen. Glee!

A couple of friends reminded me of that fact yesterday and it made me smile. I took the oath of citizenship nine months ago. The picture is from my naturalization ceremony in Chattanooga.

So, happy birthday, America. Yay, me!!


  1. U-S-A, U-S-A!

    Happy Independence Day!
