Happy President’s Day, 3-Dayers! While no doubt some of us are appreciating a day off today, no matter if you’re working, running errands, catching up on your favorite TV shows, or anything else, it’s still a wonderful day to remember the men – and women – who have led our country. Yes, that’s right, the women, too!
