Remembering Those Who Served Us

Here in the United States, today is Memorial Day. It's a day to remember those who served our country and died while doing so. It is a federal holiday going back to the days after the Civil War but has extended to commemorate all Americans who gave their lives in military service. Remembering those who served our country, we raise our flags, paying tribute and thanking them. 




I have some great Pinterest finds to share with you for this day. Patriotic Memorial Day finds always get me geared up for the Fourth of July too. What about you? Memorial Day is, after all, an unofficial start of the summer season as well. Take a look. Repin by clicking on the images.


Get the printables HERE, from How to Nest for Less.





So...Who's having a BBQ today?

No BBQ here. It's raining and I wanted to spend my holiday weekend relaxing and spending time with my family.

Powerful pins! No BBQ for me - I work at a newspaper, so the only time we rearrange deadlines to get a Monday off is if Christmas falls on one.
