Happy Memorial Day!
I'm taking a quick break from reading my book on the beach to send out my thanks for all that the American troops have done and continue to do so that I can live in a country where I am free.
It is always a good practice to know the "reason behind the season," so I encourage you to check out the interwebs or click on over here. Did you know that only since 1971 has the holiday been giving Americans a nice 3 day weekend? Or that it used to be called Decoration Day?
I'm thoroughly enjoying my freedom right now, and that includes my freedoms in the national sense and the personal sense. I will return home tomorrow and back to my job and real life, but for now I'm soaking up the sunshine and reveling in my lack of obligations. Hope you are doing the same!
