To my fellow Americans: Happy Independence Day!

Today may be filled with barbeques, chilled beer, fireworks, and red/white/blue clothing, but let’s not forget the story behind the 4th of July! Here’s a quick refresher for those who need it (no judgment!). I was lucky enough to come face-to-face (with a glass partition in between, of course) with the original copy of the Declaration of Independence in the National Archives in Washington, D.C. I remember waiting approximately two hours in line – in rain and hail, no less – just to see it, but I do think the wait and near-hypothermia was definitely worth it. After all, history had always been one of my favorite subjects in grade school, and one of my Top 10 favorite movies (National Treasure) involves said historical document!

Wishing you a festive 4th of July and a great recovery weekend!
