The Declaration of Indpendence was signed
John Adams wrote these words in a letter to his wife, Abigail
“it ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”
Thank you, John Adams, that’s exactly what we plan to do!

FAMILY AND FRIENDS THE TABLE IS READY
(don’t make it hard on yourself, just gather an old quilt for the table cloth, pie tins as the dinner plates, vintage pie dessert plates, mason jars for drinking, and what’s more American than apple pie?
Just in case you prefer a more formal setting, well join me here.
Whether you’re joining in the parades, attending a baseball game, having bonfires, or backyard BBQ’s, make sure you do it with pomp and remember the nighttime illuminations.
I’m heading over to Jann’s for Share your cup Thursday
