Memorial Day

flag.jpgI thought of doing a post on all the sales happening in town this week end, or a fun post on bathing suits, sunscreen, cute hats, and pedicures {there will be plenty to come!}, because this week end is the unofficial start of summer.  But, as I enjoyed the beautiful summer day and while I waited on the porch with Ginger for the girls to get off the bus the flag caught my eye.  We must remember the true meaning of this holiday weekend as we go to the pools, or picnics, or parks.  We are blessed to be Americans and to be free.  We must remember the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for that freedom.  People like my father and uncle who fought in World War Two and many who are  fighting today in Iraq and Afghanistan.  My prayer this Memorial Day is that those wars end quickly and those brave souls are reunited with their families to enjoy all the pleasures summer has to offer! 

Have a great week end!  Lots to come in the weeks ahead...  A tribute to Coco Chanel {how to get her look in Saratoga} and another enhancement to be unveiled!


  1. Well said. Have a relaxing weekend!

  2. Nicely put Susan - we have so much to be grateful for. Hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend. Looking forward to Coco tribute -
