Memorial Day Recap

"Home of the free, because of the brave."
To all of the people who have and continue to defend our country,
thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your service is appreciated.

I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day yesterday! To those of you who have lost loved ones, my heart goes out to you. Memorial Day has really taken on a whole new meaning for our family ever since my Dad passed away. He was a Navy veteran and even though he didn't sacrifice his life while serving three tours in Vietnam, his life was certainly taken from him because of time spent overseas. You see, my Dad was exposed to a nasty chemical known as Agent Orange while he was over there. It was because of that exposure that he developed esophageal cancer, which later spread throughout his entire body. Sadly, he lost his battle last June. I still cannot believe it's almost been a year. I miss him.

We spent the day at my brother's house. There's nothin' like a backyard BBQ with your family. Good food, good laughs — and piña coladas — We had a great afternoon and the weather was gorgeous!
