    I am a follower and I would love to be entered.
    My favorite memory as a kid was the whole family piling into the car and Dad driving us to Bowen, IL, for the biggest display of fireworks in our area. We brought blankets and sat on the hood of the car. Mom would have made popcorn to eat. We all oohed and aahed over every beautiful thing they set off. It was an amazing time.
    Thanks for stirring these old memories for me.
    BTW~I'm having a giveaway for my current followers as well. Stop over.

  5. What a wonderful thing to do Traci!!! And I can only imagine what kind of great goodies is going to be in THAT box! I'm a very happy follower of yours and would love to be entered!! My "favorite" July 4th memory (well, at least the one that immediately springs to mind when that holiday is mentioned!) is the year my son was born....My son was just barely a week old, and my husband was out of town. My older brother felt "sorry" for me having to stay home on the 4th and missing the he brought some over and set them off in my yard. Woke my son up and frightened the dickens out of him and while I was trying to console him, my lawn managed to get set on fire. And I really never did care for fireworks anyway.... :o) Thank you Sweetie for this wonderful opportunity! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  6. Ohh what an exciting giveaway! I just love Americana..and I"m sure if it's made by you...will ESPECIALLY love it!

    A favorite 4th memory...When I was in 8th grade, my Aunt was generous enough to invite me along on a trip to all the New England States. All I needed to do was watch my 9 month old cousin. We were able to spend the 4th in Maine...and went out on a boat, to watch the fireworks. I fell in love with Maine...and to this day, it would be my dream spot to live!!

  7. Firecrackers,picnics and carnivals are my favorite things to do on the 4th..Nothing exciting just simple small town life.The way I love me in on the wonderful drawing.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  8. I'd love to be entered in your giveaway! I'm a follwer & I love the 4th of July because we all gather @ my mom's house to have a cookout and watch the fireworks from her back yard. It's so much fun! Thanks for having this great giveaway!

  9. I would love a chance in your drawing! I *love* Americana. Thank you for the awesome giveaway. :)

    My favorite Independence Day memories are from when we lived down in the city by a park. Every year they have a festival and it is so much fun even for the kids. The food is wonderful, and that is where I find my favorite homemade strawberry lemonade. The park has a lake and that is where the city shoots off the fireworks, it is a fabulous site to see. :D

One of my favorite memories is when my daughter was little we would have our whole family over for a bbq and go swimming, make smores, and later when it got dark watch fireworks from our deck. It was amazing!!
    Prim Blessings,

  11. oh I would love to be entered in your giveaway. When I was a kid, my whole family would get together at my aunts house in the morning to watch the parade, then we would swim and play games and have a cookout, then we would all change our clothes and go to see the fireworks. Those are memories I will forever cherish, Family means everything and being together is the best.
    Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway

  12. Hi Traci~

    I'm a follower & would love to be entered in your giveaway.

    My favorite memories are spending time with my family. We always have a cookout, watch the parade (the boys marched in it when they were younger), and watch the fireworks. This isn't my fav memory, but a memory non the less. The first year we had our dog Zoey, the whole family went to the fireworks & left Zoey home. She somehow got stuck in the bathroom with the door closed. She chewed a huge chunk off the bottom of the door trying to get out. Poor little pooch was terrified of the fireworks. We still have the chewed up door on our bathroom.

    Have a wonderful day~Becky

  13. I am a follower please enter me , my favorite memory is the local 4th of July fair where I showed my sheep.

  14. Hi Traci-I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. I'm already a follower-what fun surprises are!!!
    We are so lucky to have the town fireworks in the elementary school field right behind our house, so each year we invite family and friends for a big cookout and then head out with our lawn chairs to watch the fireworks. They are so awesome because they are so close! We then come back to the house for a campfire. We've had this tradition for years and years and always look forward to it!
    My fingers are crossed - hope to win your giveaway and thank you so much!

  15. As you wish Tracey, I wish to enter your giveaway please. I am an old follower:)
    Oh my favorite Independence Day Family Tradition is the good old cookout with all the good summertime foods, then a short siesta so I can stay up to watch the fireworks. My funnest memory is of having the sparklers going, setting off our own fireworks(oops, is that legal anymore?) and taking our giant sling shot and shooting water balloons! Uh oh, where did they go? That's all I will divulge:) Thanks Tracey!

    My favorite 4th of July memory was the celebration we attended when we were stationed in England. It was an amazing event, the fireworks were the best I had ever seen, even to this day. Maybe it was because we were all so far from home. Who knows.
    Now we have family come over and watch the fireworks from my back yard.
    Best of all thought would have to be the fireflies. That is when they start to appear for us and it reminds me of being a child every time.

  22. Hi Traci, Would love to be entered in your surprise giveaway. The first memory that popped in my head....Probably 11/12 yrs old. A dry summer. We were at the neighbors with our sparklers and someone got the idea of how cute the sparkler was atop their green bush. Needless to say, we had to put a fire out!!!!!

  23. Hi - I am already a follower. Please enter me in your giveaway. My favorite memories are getting together with family having BBQs and setting off fireworks - nothing big but great memories.

    My favorite Forth of July memory, is just always having a cookout!!! And going to see fireworks. I guess the greatest was when we went to Disney Land when the kids were small and seeing their awesome fireword display! Have a great day! Hugs, Lecia

  25. Hi Traci - pls enter me in your great giveaway! I LOVED the 4th as a cousins would come up every year from downstate and we would read comic books until it got dark-it takes forever to get dark on July 4th! My dad would tie sparklers to the willow tree branches-always a magical time! ~*~Lisa

  26. Oh I would love to be kids my mom would braid our hair and put ribbons at the bottom and then loop our hair and tie it up (by the ears) we had loop braids..I always loved my hair like that..and I recall it around the 4th of july..we also loved our sparklers and running around at night drawing letters and words and seeing how long they would last..we also got cap guns too..but loved using rocks to snap the caps..:)

  27. I am a longtime follower. Please enter me in your giveaway!
    We spend our 4th of July in Wildwood New Jersey every year while on our 2 week summer beach vacation. We go down to the beach at night with our blankets and chairs to watch the fireworks.

  28. I'm a new follower
    and would be THRILLED to win some goodies!
    Last 4th of July we were SO tired at the end of the day that we decided not to go to the fireworks but when it got dark...we stood on our balcony and they were going off in every direction! We had a 'ring side' seat! It was pure bliss! Thanks! ♥

  29. Hi Traci, I am already a follower and would love for you to enter me in your fun giveaway. Every yr. are whole family gets together for a family reunion on the 4th, on a wonderful friend of the family's land. Each family brings a salad to pass. The cost for the meat,beverages, snacks, fireworks, and prizes for games for children and adults are then divided between all the family's(each yr. being a differnt family to be in charge of getting all extras). We start our day about 8am and end the party with a big display of fireworks at dusk. Every yr. new memoriors are made and it's such a fun filled holiday being spent with the entire family. What could be more awesome!

  30. Hi Tracy,
    I love following your blog and would love to be entered into your giveaway!

    I LOVE July 4th. Growing up, we used to go to our camp on the St. Lawrence river in NY. we would roast marshmallows, burn sparklers, and watch fireworks over the river, those summers rocked! Plus my birthday is exactly one week after so it was a good week!

    I also remember the year the movie "Independence Day" came out, think it was summer 1996? it was SO COLD that day, I actually was wearing jeans and a sweater! We decided to go see that movie as it was just to cold out to do anything outside, (raining too)

    It was AWESOME, the whole theater went nuts at several points in the movie, it made it so much fun. I will remember that day, so weird but ended up a unique 4th! (gotta love that upstate NY weather!) I smile and chuckle when I think back on that :)

    Anyway, thanks for the great giveaway! I have my fingers crossed!


  31. Hi Traci,
    I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. I love Americana! My favorite July 4th memory would be as a child ~ our family would go to the Buck PA tractor pulls and watch the trucks and tractors pull a heavy sled across a finish line, then after the show they would have the most beautiful fireworks desplay. Oh the memories....
    Thank you for offering this generous giveaway.

  32. Hi Traci! Please enter me in your giveaway, I love everything Americana! My favorite memory of the 4th of July was the last Summer, when we were in Kentucky, and my little granddaughter would clap and laugh when she liked the fireworks. That was so long ago, she was only a year and a half old then, she just got married!

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen
