America Is…

Happy InDePeNdEnCe DaY from The Suede Sofa!  As we celebrate our FrEeDoM we thought we would share our thoughts on what America means to us.

Robyn: Living in New Jersey, America to me is having the opportunity to take my kids to Ellis Island and show them where my great grandparents became United States citizens, seeing the Statue of Liberty, and catching a Broadway play all in one day!  Then hopping in the car and in an hour or so putting our feet in the sand and soaking up the sun on the same beach that my grandparents took my mom to 60 years ago!

Lara: America to me is continuing my husband’s 5th generation farm legacy of helping feed America and the world.

We thought Rodney Atkin’s song, It’s America was perfect to kick off our 4th of July…we hope you enjoy it too!

We love to hear from our readers.  Leave your comments and let us know what America is to you!

Happy 4th of July!!
