Stefan and I are doing our part in keeping Dutch/American relations strong!
I learned a little background about this day… The Netherlands was the first country to recognize (even if unofficially) the independence of the United States (yeah Dutchies!)! When John Adams bought a house in the Hague, it became the first US Embassy in the World (who knew?!). In 1982 President Reagan proclaimed April 19 as Dutch-American Friendship Day!
And most importantly… on July 12, 2014 the Dutch and American flags were flying together outside the Kasteel de Schaffelaar in Barnevelds, NL!
Love (and American size hugs!) and XXX (3 Dutch kisses) to all my family and friends in the Netherlands!
