HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE!
Just wanted to wish you all a very nice Independence Day as we all get dressed in our Red, White, and Blue! This is a special holiday for SJ and me because it is the anniversary of our engagement. 10 years ago we flew to England so I could meet some of SJ's family and while in London on the 4th he asked me to marry him. He proposed in Westminster Abbey and of course I said YES! That night we went to get some champagne to celebrate and the store we stopped at was all decked out in Red, White and Blue and the clerk wished us a happy 4th of July thinking that was why we were buying the champagne. Now, I was born and raised in Boston and spent much time in Concord, MA and Lexington, MA where there were famous confrontations with the Red Coats. You know, the "Shot heard round the world"!! Well, this New Englander got a good chuckle out of being wished a happy 4th of July from an Englishman IN England!
