It’s almost time to celebrate America!
And what a perfect time to start thinking about celebrating with the big win of Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday. It passed through the House of Representatives by a resounding 415–14 vote on June 16.
My coworker was telling our team the story of Opal Lee, a local Fort Worth resident, who walked all the way to Washington D.C. (in her late eighties) in 2016 to petition the Obama administration to put this holiday on the calendar. And sticking with her cause, she got to join President Biden yesterday as he signed the bill into law.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when your passion and goals align with your will. And being in America allows us that right! If that isn’t worth celebrating, then I don’t know what is.
And for that I wanted to plan my outfit as best as I could. Here’s a few looks that really inspired me!
