Lilly at The White House

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

flagThis past week was full of excitement after we received a call from The White House. Lilly’s submission to the Student Film Festival had received honorable mention and she was therefore invited to the event taking place at The White House. 2014LDG WhiteHouse

If you ever need a shot of pride for your country, take a visit to DC and walk through the monuments that pay respect to those that have served us as citizens. Be it a President or a soldier, there are monuments to pay respect to each.

After The White House, we strolled through the Smithsonian where we saw the Genome; Unlocking Life’s Code exhibit, featuring our friends, the Beery family. If you want to see more visit www.unlockinglifescode.org.

Show your patriotic spirit with Letters from Lilly stationery and the flag design. You can use it for personal notes… a thank you to the President for having us perhaps.

The Olympics!

http://www.techdigest.tv/olympic-apps-thumb.jpgIt’s that fabulous time again. In just over an hour, The Olympics will begin. I’m excited to watch them wherever I am, at any given time. This is the first year in our history that we can watch The Olympics on the go; literally.

Just 4 years ago, there were no iphones or ipads. How did we survive? Now we can carry our American pride with us and watch Michael Phelps, and others, win gold while we shop, wait for an appointment, or eat dinner on the beach. There will be 1 billion people watching the Opening Ceremonies today, many on handheld devices. The official site www.london2012.com.

I remember as a kid, my brother and I would hurry to eat dinner and get in our pajamas so we could settle into the shag carpeting, on our stomachs, side by side, with our chins in our hands watching the gymnastics, swimming, sculling, sailing and more. I loved the stories about the athletes, their training and learning about the hometown that we’d never heard of until they won gold.

There is a great video showing the Olympic feat the city of London has had to endure to get ready for so many athletes and spectators. There are actually 11 webcams set up around the Olympic village where you can tune in to see current action.

I’m sure my future posts will continue to share Olympic memories. I’ll be waving  my American flag, but I really cheer for all the athletes because I love their dedication and determination. The Olympics to me are the one time the world comes together to compete together, having fun all the while.countries homepage

Our American flag design is perfect to show your American pride during the Olympics or any of the other holidays where we fly the red, white and blue.
