Monday is a holiday in the US. It’s Memorial Day which is a day to remember all those who have died while serving in the United Stated Armed Forces. Thank you to all those men and women who sacrificed themselves for all of us. You are not forgotten.
Above is photo I took in 2010 of some crosses in Lafayette, CA, close to where I live. Each cross represents one service member who died in the Iraq war since 2001. They stopped putting up the crosses at 5,000 because they ran out of room but they still update the number on the sign. It’s now around 6,600.
Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of summer. I love this time of year. For me it’s all about warm weather, BBQ, lemonade, iced coffee, long days and shorts. Yay!
Monday also happens to be me and Mr. VV’s 7th wedding anniversary. So we shall be dining on fabulous food to celebrate!
I really wish I was back in Hawaii right this minute. I miss it. We haven’t been back since we were married and I REALLY need a super relaxing vacation with no internet connection. Sigh. One day, one day.
Also don’t forget, piCture pOlish Blue Dog goes on sale Monday!
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you Tuesday!
