Happy Independence Day!

We hope that you’ve had the perfect long weekend and are still celebrating in absolute style! Maybe you’ve taken a vacay with your honey, beaching it with your besties or are spending time with your family in traditional BBQ fashion– what ever the case may be, we hope that you had at least a moment to think about the meaning of independence. It’s OK if you haven’t yet, normally its all about the fireworks for us too.

With that being said, a little history lesson can never hurt, especially on a topic that still has such significant relevance today and one that can apply to all of us individually…

It has been 235 years since the drafting and signing of The Declaration of Independence by our America’s founders. In 1776, a group of courageous people risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor for a dream of freedom and sweet autonomy from an imperial power. Pretty magnificent.
