Happy Memorial Weekend!

Thank you to all the brave men and women who have served to protect our country. Every single one is a hero in my book.

I had to explain to my 8 year old why we celebrate Memorial Day. She asked about war and why we have them. Good question. I could explain some and others not so much. I am just thankful that there are soldiers out there that never question, they are just loyal and serve this country. What an amazing blessing. They are not forced. They just serve.

Our weekend has been fun. The pool, a neighborhood party and tonight hubby and I are headed HERE to celebrate our 12 year anniversary. He surprised me with reservations.

How about you? Any big plans?

That looks like a lovely place !! Happy Anniversary.
We spent some time talking about Memorial day this morning, my teens of course understand things more, but this was sad, as my daughter was completing a paper on the Taliban.
