~ Happy Independence Day!


I know, I know...most people say “Happy 4th of July” but the date is not what we are celebrating. It’s what happened on that date that is important. Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

  6. Hope you had a perfect Independence Day, Pat! We're continuing with our hot, humid, and rainy weather down here. I'm now counting down until October when it cools down a bit. Hope you have a great week!
