Memorial Day to Me

What a whirlwind month it’s been! My best friend got married in Florida, and Nate and I drove down there to attend. I was the lucky matron of honor and I did feel honored to be a part of Sara and Wally Bolinger’s special day. Sara looked stunning in her dress and her cute starfish updo was amazing. Nate and I got to spend a chunk of time together alone for his birthday which was fabulous. I haven’t been to a beach or Florida in over a decade and it was so nice. I’m determined to take my kids in the next couple is years.

Here are some pictures from the weekend. I can’t wait to see the professional ones!

I saw a post recently in which someone mentioned that there is a difference between Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Veterans Day is meant to honor all of those who have served our country, while Memorial Day is meant to remember those who have fallen during their time in service. I do understand this difference, though I didn’t always. Maybe it isn’t the way it’s supposed to be, but I choose to think of all who have served or are serving on Memorial Day, because surely every service person has been effected by a fallen friend or peer. I find myself considering how difficult the emotional and mental stresses are on our American soldiers.

What do you think?
