I hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day weekend, and took time out to reflect on the real reason we are able to have this Holiday...In thanks for the ultimate sacrifice the men and women of our Military have made in exchange for the freedom that is given to all Americans. Without these brave men and women, we would have nothing like we do to today...so please remember that! If there is one thing I am, it is Patriotic. The sight of American flags, and red, white, and blue gets me teary eyed with happiness and so thankful to live in such an amazing country. It also makes me want to jam out to Zac Brown and Toby Keith music all day, drink beer, BBQ, wear my stars and stripes, and sit on the patio reflecting on how lucky we are to be American. Regardless of if it is Memorial Day, or just another day... always stop to thank the Military service members you see and say "thank you." It is, after all, these people who work and dedicate their lives to protect your freedoms.
Of course, Memorial Day also holds a special place in my heart, because my honey has been deployed 4 times, and served almost 10 years in the Marine Corps and just recently got out to start his civilian career. I tell him I am thankful for him each and everyday...
We spent our Memorial Day weekend doing home projects- Lee built a headboard for our bed that I found on Pinterest (I will show you in a future post), and I re-did Ledoux's room, also from Pinterest. How often do you actually get around to doing even one Pinterest project? Much less two! Wahoo! Chalk that up to a successful weekend! We also spent time outside, in the pool, and taking in the gorgeous weather before it gets ridiculously hot outside. It only got to 95 degrees or so (Gesh, that seems so hot...but it didn't seem like it at all!) Now that Memorial Day has passed, my sights are set on my most favorite Holiday...the 4th of July! My Pinterest is busting at the seems with ideas on how to celebrate every day for the next month and a half... so excited! I also found some awesome ideas for the daddy's of the world for Father's Day that I am going to share in my next blog post, so stay tuned!
