Break Out the Bunting




...Memorial Day has arrived and with it, the promise of summer at its heels. So, break out the bunting, plan the BBQ, and remember what the coming season and celebrating America is all about.



...pull together the red, white and blue.
















...and with pride, cherish the memory of those who have given us our Country.






















Enjoy this holiday weekend...and I offer a heartfelt thanks to all those who have made, and are making America my home sweet home.

That sounds just divine, Jen. I love the nostalgia of lemonade on a front porch, and red white and blue banners hanging from the posts, you can conjure up magic, girl! Have a wonderful celebration!!
