Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day 2015!

To me, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer. I love the warm weather and long days of summer.

Another reason this weekend is special to me is because Tim and I got married on Memorial Day weekend in Athens, Georgia. I've been blessed beyond measure being his wife all these years. (Here we are at a banquet with Scott.)

But the real reason for Memorial Day weekend started after the Civil War. It's a federal holiday to remember people in the armed forces who died while serving our great country.

There's no place I'd rather live than in the United States. If you have served, or are serving, in the United States armed forces, thank you!

I hope you all have a blessed Memorial Day!
