Happy Memorial Day!

Just had our "kick off to summer" cookout in the backyard...Thankfully the weather warmed up enough for a little BBQ.

We had enough food for about 15 people, even though it was just the four of us.

Even if today is the unofficial kick off to summer, it's also a day of remembrance, gratitude, and sacrifice.

Take a minute to think about why we have today off  - about the men, women, and the families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. We too often forget that our freedom isn't free. 
Two of my favorite men in uniform:
My pop-pop (WWII) and my grandpa (Korea) 
So on this Memorial Day and always God bless the US military - fallen heroes, active servicemen and women, families and friends. We honor you today. Thank you for all you do seen and unseen for all of us.

Hope you spent your long weekend with those you love best and say a silent prayer for those who could not.  God bless.
