Hot or Not?
Happy Independence Day!
Today we celebrate our Independence Day! On this day in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. This historic document severed all ties with Great Britain and established many of our nation’s fundamental principles of freedom, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Happy Birthday America & thanks to the brave who serve/have served our country to keep our freedom!
This is one of my favorite holidays and not just because it's a day off from work. This year, we're doing it up right, family-style! The morning was filled with a neighborhood parade that ended in our neighbor's yard filled with chairs and blankets, potluck dishes and cool drinks. This evening we'll be headed for more fun grilling up some cheeseburgers with friends and then finally off to see some live music and fireworks! This is the first year we will keep my 3-year-old up to watch the fireworks in the heart of our city. I can't wait to see his face when the fireworks show lights up the city sky!
So, I wish my Buxr family a very safe and Happy 4th of July. How will you be celebrating the holiday/long weekend?
