Independence Day

In early June, Andy and I were discussing our plans for Independence Day. I suggested we go to Mount Vernon- a new place to see DC fireworks. We could bring the dog we would be dog-sitting that week with us. The conversation was casual, even when it opened up the discussion of how we should call it Independence Day -not July 4th- to recognize and not forget the actual significance of the holiday and the reason we have all these BBQs…

Independence Day also marked our half-year anniversary. I don’t think we would have celebrated half-years otherwise, had it not fallen on a holiday. But then Andy passed away unexpectedly on June 25, 2015, and July 4th came and went.
