This year we were in the US for the Fourth of July, which meant a big pancake breakfast and fireworks out on the road in front of the house. I’m usually a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to fireworks – I don’t care much for standing out in the cold on November 5th, but the US are doing the right thing having their celebrations in the middle of summer, we happily sat out watching the neighbourhood light up with fizz, pops and bangs.
So, whilst I’m a bit late to the U.S lovin’ party..I’ve had almost a week at home to reflect on why I’d happily visit the States again and again. First would have to be the food – I may have gained a couple lbs on my visit, but not without good, buttery, syrupy reason. Then of course there was the weather, both a blessing and a curse (evenings in the pool vs a red nose and headaches), but any weather granting the ability to wear a simple sun dress is good enough for me. And something rather unique to my situation, I get to visit a bit of a menagerie when I arrive at my family’s house, and this time there were puppies! They may have spent their every waking moment attempting to steal my undergarments/socks/shoes..well…you name it…but who could resist those fluffy little faces? Can you guess their breed?
In the UK, you grow up watching American television shows and films, so to be there is always a bit of a dream – I have an amazing time simply walking around the supermarket pointing out things I’d heard of but never eaten (I tried my first meatloaf this year!) and listening to the accents.
I’m already anticipating my next trip – and crossing my fingers for New York! x
