  1. My American story in one sentence would have to be my vision statement: "I am rooted in faith, grounded in gratitude, called to create and pursuing passions."

  2. My story? I'm doing what I LOVE!! This country's freedom allows me to do that by sharing my passion of re-purposing and design with my friends!! 'Live with what you love' :)

  3. My American story is to promote gardening for the everyday men, women and children for food, beauty and simple enjoyment.

  4. My story? Loving my family and helping us all to enjoy the beautiful country we live in. We were born lucky - southeners whose grandparents had an 80 acre farm in Virginia.

  5. The American story to me is being able to pursue our dreams and live loving lives and sharing our passions with the world and bettering everyone's lives around us.

  6. Being American is the freedom to do and believe what is best for my family and community with what ever humble talents I possess.
