In Memoriam

Happy Memorial Day my American friends!!
Memorial Day

This Memorial Day is a wee bit different for us. If at home I'd be gearing up for BBQ and wearing shorts and flip flops that mirrored the above picture. Instead Royal and I are going horseback riding, you heard me, horse back riding. The 7 year old little girl in me is crazed with excitement. Yes, I was one of those little girls who adored horses, but only rode a pony around a circle once. {lol} Tomorrow though all of her dreams will be coming true! Isn't Royal the best??

Moving On...

Even though we are experiencing life in a new way doesn't mean that we forget who we are. {Patriots!! Yes we are from New England} Tomorrow is a day to remember all those who have fought valiantly for our freedoms. It's a time to share stories of my pop-pop who served in the Korean War with my kiddos. I love the memories I have of this man and cannot wait to tell some of my great memories of him.I was lucky enough that he did not have to give his life, but I know others through out the many decades of our country's short life have not been so lucky.

It is my sincere hope that we can, amongst all the fun, take a moment of pause today and observe a moment of silence with our friends and loved ones to remember the brave men and women who have served fiercely for these United States. For our home.
