When I think of Memorial Day...

I think of the months ahead of grilling dinner, where there are less dishes and my husband is the main chef!
I think of all the yummy sweet fruits in season including watermelon!

I think of the summer vacation beginning for school kids and teachers and the impact that has on traffic each morning.

I think of swings, front porchs, outdoor ceiling fans, hanging ferns, and the late night conversations to be had because sleeping late is allowed.

I think of swimming pools, the smell of sunscreen, trips to the beach, and sprinklers in the yard.

And, I think of the brave men and women and their giving families who will not enjoy all that I am able to because of the sacrifices they made.

Happy Memorial Day to all!
