Happy Memorial Day!

I hope your day was filled with wrinkly fingers and toes from swimming too much, BBQ’s, and spending time with your family and friends.

And a very special thank you to all the service men and women who give up time with your own families to protect our country.  And, also, thank you to the wives and husbands of those who serve.  I’ve seen first hand how hard it is to be without your spouse for months and months at a time!  Thinking about both of my Grandpa’s today who were in WWII, my good friend Liza’s little brother Andy who is currently serving, my friend Julie’s husband who served in Iraq and is now heading to Korea, and Erin Dietrich’s husband, Scott, who missed her entire pregnancy and birth of their daughter while he was in Iraq last year.  Thank you for ALL of your sacrifices!


  1. This just made me tear up! Thank you for remembering to thank Scott, that was sweet of you! =)

    Hope you guys has a great Memorial Day weekend! Wish I had some cool pictures to post of us at the pool yesterday but Ooo that’s right, I DIDN’T HAVE A CARD IN MY CAMERA! You can bet that will never happen again thanks to your little trick! 😉

    Thank you for thinking of Andy too 😉 It makes me feel better to know that so many people are wishing the best for him – makes me feel like John, Bernadette and I are not alone. Thanks for being such a good friend doll! Can’t wait to see you next time I”m home!
