Flag Day

One of the small details that really made our house feel like a home was getting a flag and displaying it on traditional flag flying days. We ended up buying ours through the "United States Capitol Flag Program" (you place the order with one of your State's Senators, found here). Not only are the flags well made & a good price, as a bonus your flag is flown over the US Capitol on any date you choose. We asked for ours to arrive as soon as possible, so it was flown over the Capitol one random summer day. Not a huge deal, but in hindsight I would have specified an occasion since the flag came with a fancy certificate with our name and date. We thought it was such a cool program, we ordered flags to be flown on each of our parents’ and siblings’ wedding anniversaries last year, then gave them as Christmas gifts. If you order a flag today, it probably won't reach you by the 4th of July (this is a government program after all) but you could have it by Labor Day . . .
