Happy 4th Of July!

Hi Everyone!
Happy 4th of July!
Guest blogger Jenny is in Hawaii enjoying a much-deserved vacation. She’ll be back later this week with her usual informative and funny posts here on Beyond The Brochure and her gift suggestions on Find A Toad.

I’m hosting a BBQ for a few friends because July 4th is my favorite holiday of the year. It always promises great weather, relaxation and a nice reminder of American patriotism. Enjoy your holiday!

Here’s a July 4th post I wrote in response to an open call for essays about “when you felt most American” on Open Salon, the sister site of Salon.com. This piece, called “Black Churches, “Amazing Grace And Feeling American, was selected for the cover as an Editor’s Pick.
