Taking Draper James to France on July 4th

It’s truly incredible how much our young country has been through after 241 years in existence. Much has impacted our current trajectory, and while most of it is our own doing, we would not be who we are without the support and loyalty of our allies. Through all of our growing pains the people and country of France have been there for us, from acknowledging our sovereignty and becoming a military ally in our fight for British independence, to gifting us our beautiful Lady Liberty over 100 years later.

This time around I had the opportunity to take some photos of the Chateau Versailles, Marie Antoinette’s Winter residence outside of Paris.
