Do you know what anniversary this is?
I didn’t either, but thanks to Google, I do now!
Today marks the 130th anniversary of France delivering the Statue of Liberty to the United States.

I love that Google shares this information – what a great way to keep up with our history!
In 2000, I had the privilege of visiting New York City for a few days after a software conference in New Jersey with my Alaska Accounting girls. What an amazing experience. I plan to take the boys to see the area when they are a couple years older, however the landscape has changed a bit since my visit.
This trip was quick, but we saw quite a few things in our short stay. A large amount of history for our great nation is showcased on Ellis Island. Even though I have visited, travel here is something that will remain on my bucket list for a while. You simply cannot see it all in one or two visits.
Remember to document your life – life is worth living and remembering!!!!!
