Just a few words to offer since I had a nice post planned but was out of power for a day and a half thanks to Tropical Storm Beryl! It was a quiet, gloomy/rainy day this year–much different from the usual BBQ, boating and flags in the sunshine that I normally associate with the holiday.
I particularly like holidays like Memorial Day since we all agree. It’s not like several of our religious or local holidays that occasionally divide people. Honoring men and women who have literally died protecting people they don’t know or agree with for a greater freedom and responsibility is amazing.
I do hope that wherever you were, you had a sunnier day and were able to enjoy it with friends or family! I’ve been trying to post once a week in line with my new birthday goal for better blog/life balance (as an experiment). BUT, I have to share my trip to the Big Easy with you…so I’ll see you later this week with all those pictures! :)
