hello Monday...Lest We Forget...Memorial Day
Today is Memorial Day...
liberty has a dear price and on this day,
All gave some, and some gave all.
We are off to the Memorial Day Parade downtown...the kids and Micah are all marching with the Scouts...I am wearing my red, white and blue and will watch from the sidelines with my folks and wave flags as they pass and applaud the many, many who will march and thank them for their service.
I love these vintage postcards, with their sentiments that may seem old-fashioned...
though patriotism can never go out of style!
These are some of my very favorites...
I have collected postcards for years
and have some on the site too...
May I ask nothing more of this week, than that we remember with honor and grace all those who have served Our Country...
Hello remembering old-fashioned ideas can sometimes be good...
Hello Monday and this new week, I am ready for you.
Hello to getting ready for
The Country Living Fair...yikes only 10 more days! Hope we will see you there.
Hello to hanging the bunting on the porch and draping the flags around the front door...
Hello to tons of projects for the kiddos, it's that time of year as school wraps up
(we go 'til the end of June...)
Hello America. Have a wonderful week, whatever's in store for you...
