< Pool time on a sunny afternoon, in celebration of my friend's birthday! >
Ahhh, what a wonderful long holiday weekend this has been! It would have been nice to have maybe just one more day off, but thank goodness all kinds of fun can be packed in to just three days. Visits with family made for good times during delicious meals, and a birthday barbecue celebration at our place was an excellent time with wonderful friends. Memorial Day weekend is always one of my favorites- my husband's birthday usually falls around now, memories of honoring the service men and women who have protected our country always warms my heart, and kicking off summer with backyard barbecues and time by the water always leaves a feeling of excitement in the air. I hope you are looking forward to a great short week, so no matter what you are facing this week, make it a great one!!
