Why July 4th is Important to TallSlim: Sam's Story

July 4th is a big deal to us at TallSlim, and we make it a big deal in the Huebner household. Here's why I believe it's so important to celebrate:

4th of July is a big deal to us here at TallSlim, and truthfully it's a big deal to me, too.

We love 4th of July here in the Huebner household.

So much so, my kids can read my mind when I think about the perfect 4th of July. See for yourself:

Back when I was a kid, my parents really made the 4th feel special for us. I had the privilege of spending almost every 4th of July in the great state of Nebraska as a kid. Even though I was a Colorado boy, we would travel to visit my grandma just about every 4th of July.

Some of my fondest memories we spending time at the community pool and soaking up that midwestern sun. My dad was not someone to just spend money, but when the 4th of July came, we would spend a lot of money on fireworks.

I'm really grateful for the memories I created in Nebraska during the 4th of July as a kid.

Passing Traditions Down

While I got to visit Nebraska as a kid, my wife actually grew up in Seward - which is considered to be the "4th of July" city of the United States. We both have this love for the 4th, and we're hoping to pass down that joy to our own kids.

We really try to make a big deal out of the 4th of July every year. Four summers in a row, we've traveled to the small town of Seward, Nebraska for the 4th of July. We like to spend a few days there just totally embracing the midwestern small town life during midsummer.

We do the parade where local companies have floats, and we walk around the town square for some shopping. The town really does have a carnival-like feel to it as you walk down the street. There's tons of fair food and candy - stuff the kids just absolutely love.

It's not the 4th without fireworks, so we like to hit up the stands to get some fireworks ourselves. And then of course there's the big firework show they put on later that night.

America is the Best Country in the World to Own a Small Business

There's so much to be thankful for around the 4th of July. I'm so grateful for our freedom. Most recently, I've reflected on what a privilege it is to raise our kids in a country where they have the freedom to believe whatever they want to believe. We hope to instill in them a thankfulness and awareness that not every country provides that same freedom.

I think as a business owner, I realize that America is still the best country in the world to start a small business. There's no other country in the world that gives such a good platform to start a small business.

My wife and I are just so grateful for the freedom and liberties granted to us here in the U.S. that allow us to start and operate a business like TallSlim.
