A Few of My Favorites - 07.04.14

Today we're having A Few of My Favorites I Love America Edition!

What are the chances that the 4th of July falls on a FoMF Friday? I think this calls for a little something special...Happy Birthday America!

1. Bonobos National Panthems: Let's be honest here, why wouldn't you have these suckers in your wardrobe arsenal? Be sure to grab a pair before your size sells out...rumor has it this is the last year they are being made!

2. Made in America - Kanye West & Jay-Z: Watch the Throne is perhaps one of my favorite albums of the past four years. Made in America makes the perfect addition to any 4th of July playlist.

3. John F. Kennedy: For as long as I can remember, JFK has been my favorite US president. Perhaps it is the idea of Camelot or that the Kennedy family is the closest we will ever have to American royalty.

4. Golden Retriever: What gets more American than a golden retriever puppy running around the backyard with an American flag bandana tied around its neck? No dogs for me right now, but perhaps sometime in the future...if I ever find myself responsible enough to care for one.

5. Lady Liberty: The Statue of Liberty is America. The idea of coming to a strange land to start a new life. This is by far one of the greatest symbols that we have for America. When I lived in NYC, I always loved going down to Battery Park and admiring the statue from a far.
