So absolutely happy for and proud of my biggest baby love, Lincoln. He earned his 3rd stripe tonight and he said: Mama, I cannot stop smiling. I think I have a smile attack! So grateful to great teachers and all his amazing friends there #lincoln#turkontheloose#sealyons
The federal holiday we are celebrating today is officially known as Washington's Birthday, even though his birthday isn't for another 4 days.
Originally created to celebrate our first President's birth, the holiday was on his actual birthday, February 22nd. It was moved to the 3rd Monday in February by the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1971.
Surprisingly, Congress couldn't agree on the name change to Presidents' Day, so legally it was never changed. The new name stuck with the public, however, and many states officially adopted the name, as well. Illinois did not, since it celebrates Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays separately.
Regardless of the history, don't forget to celebrate Washington, Lincoln, and any other favorite Presidents today.
Took the boys on an adventure over the weekend and played tourist in our own city! We ate the best Mexican and walked all over uptown, while the boys searched for glimpses of their favorite @nbaallstar2019 players!
We had our fun in this @lincoln Navigator that we’ve been test driving from @felixsabateslincoln. It’s the perfect car for a #boymom of some really tall little ones that still wants her car to look good with her outfit! 💁🏻♀️
Leaders stand up for what they believe in. They say what they think with rationale and clarity, and are not afraid.
Today, Presidents Day, we celebrate the great leadership of Washington and Lincoln.
Their lives teach us to also stand proudly for Principles and Freedom; for everyone, everywhere.
I’m grateful to live in this wonderful country. I’m grateful for the American President’s who bravely stand for what they believe, no matter the cost.
First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation of President Lincoln (1864), Francis Bicknell Carpenter. "New York artist Francis Bicknell Carpenter believed that the Emancipation Proclamation was "an act unparalleled for moral grandeur in the history of mankind."  Carpenter had a deep respect for Lincoln's action, and it was he who had the impulse to capture it on canvas, to exalt the moment of the first reading of the proclamation. About a year after the preliminary proclamation, Carpenter acted on this impulse. He asked Illinois Representative Owen Lovejoy to arrange for him to paint the subject at the White House—in fact, to set up a studio there (eventually, in the State Dining Room). On February 6, 1864, Carpenter met Lincoln, and the project began. His extraordinary extended residence in the White House resulted in the Senate's painting and in the informative, sometimes moving, 1866 memoir, Six Months at the White House with Abraham Lincoln."

☕️My Private Barista... U.S. president Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) defined democracy as: «Government of the people, by the people, for the people» Democracy is by far the most challenging form of government - both for politicians and for the people. The term democracy comes from the Greek language and means that "rule by the (simple) people".
First generation (1939–1948) 1942 LINCOLN CONTINENTAL CABRIOLET .
#Continentals from #1939 to #1941 shared largely the same body design with each other; based on the #LincolnZephyr , the #lincolnContinental received few updates from year to year.
For the #1942 model year, all #Lincoln models were given squared-up fenders, and a revised grille. The result was a #boxier, somewhat heavier look in keeping with then-current design trends, but perhaps less graceful in retrospect. 1942 production was shortened, following the entry of the #UnitedStates into #WorldWarII ; the attack on #PearlHarbor led to the suspension of production of automobiles for #civilian use.
