This post is a little different from most of my posts on this blog. I wanted to take the time to appreciate that this has been "Memorial Day weekend". This is going up on a day that I am honestly not online.
This is a day where I spent the day with loved ones. This year we are keeping it really low key and just staying home and celebrating the kick off to summer with friends. There will be board games and laughter. Sometimes simple is the most fun.
The holiday is not simply a start to summer though. This is the day that we celebrate those we have lost. This is a tribute to those who sacrificed for us. This is not just a day of happiness but also remembrance.
I am so thankful because I have the freedoms and the wonderful life that I have. I am appreciative for all of you who come to this blog. I am also thankful to all of those who have come before me.
