Memorial Debrief

I love Memorial Day weekend and look forward to it every year. It is always a time for reflection and gratitude to all of the brave men and women who have served and are serving this beautiful country I am blessed to call home. It is also a weekend that I get to spend with my family. Ever since J and I ventured off to the SLC, it has become a tradition for my parents to make the drive down from Montana to spend the long weekend with us. And since my brother and his wife moved back to the states from Australia last year, they have now become a part of the tradition as well. And of course this Memorial Day weekend did not disappoint. In fact, it might have been the best one yet-so much so that everyone decided to spend an extra day in the SLC to relish the beautiful weather and precious time together.

First Corona of the year.  Yup, it’s officially summer!

Pretty, pretty flowers. 

It really doesn’t get much better than a long weekend with family and an added bonus day together, does it?  So thank you mom, dad, Mike, Jess, Daisy, and Sydney for making the trip to the SLC.  I don’t think I could pick a favorite part of the weekend, but I definitely feel really good about the time we had together.  😉  I already miss you each dearly and am so looking forward to August when we will all be together again!!
