56 Men

Happy 4th of July, everyone!! Wishing you all a lovely day off, FREE to do what you choose.

Here’s how my day will go: Family time (including my SIL and niece from out of town. YAY!) An outlet visit on the way to Austin, frolicking in natural swimming holes, a food truck visit to South Congress, the Salt Lick, an Anthro visit to downtown Lamar (because what would Independence be without Anthro?), and Fireworks with the Austin Symphony. BOOM!

Hope your day is explosively happy too!

And might I include a shout-out to our founding fathers, for their dedication, morals, and conviction. Thank you for making it possible for me and my family to be celebrating 236 years later what you accomplished back then. I will not forget.

Founding Fathers. Might I add, I’m loving the rust and gold tones going on here.

“As you enjoy your fireworks, hot dogs, hamburgers, watermelon, [Anthropologie, swimming holes, Outlets, Salt Lick,] and family gatherings, please take a minute to remember the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, and the risks they took doing so. If captured they would have been executed, and their property confiscated. Benjamin Franklin, who was among those 56 men representing the colony of Pennsylvania, remarked sagely, “We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.”
