I grew up in Lexington, MA, and we learned the story of the American Revolution very young. In the center of town, on the green, there stands a statue of John Parker, a monument to the Minutemen who risked their lives to fight the British in 1776. I always felt just a little more patriotic whenever I passed that statue.
Years have passed and while I have lived in a few other places, I still have a soft spot in my heart for Massachussetts and the stories we heard about American Independence.
So when I saw this brooch on fellow blogger Bella Q’s site, I knew I had to have it. This guy is the Concord minuteman - from the town right next to ours and the home of many other brave fighters, but he reminds me of the one I saw so frequently as a girl. And I wear it proudly today for all of those who have done so much for our freedom.
Gorgeous Ana B looks amazing in her patriotic ensemble. Go Mrs American Made!
