Happy Memorial Day

Graves_at_Arlington_on_Memorial_DayMemorial Day weekend is the kick-off to summer.  We were lucky with amazing weather, family, friends and of course a ridiculous amount of food.  A joy to be back in the kitchen cooking up a storm.  This year we had a few others who made a few things too which is something I could get more used to.

Memorial Day is a holiday to honor those who have died while serving our country since 1861. Enjoy the day off and remember those who serve and have served in our military.  They deserve a lot more than they get from our country when it comes to healthcare, financial support, opportunities to transition their careers into private life, etc.  I know more than a handful of people with organizations helping VETS return to civilian life and am a big fan.

Enjoy the day…yet remember why we get this day off.
