Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer!
What will you be doing? Barbecuing? Having a potluck? Gathering with family and friends? I hope you do all of those things; resting, gathering and remembering all of those who died while serving our country.
If you have a loved one who died while serving our country, I am praying for you. I just cannot fathom that sacrifice and yet from speaking with those who serve, they willingly put their lives on the line to protect and serve our great country.
For those of you who subscribe to my RSS feed, I need to apologize because it’s been a very busy week here, lemon week to be exact with a new lemon recipe each day. I plan on featuring those once a week for the next few weeks.

It’s been a busy week for our family; graduation party for our son, family in town, post-storm clean up after we had almost 7 inches of heavy, wet snow! Sadly, it took down a lot of branches. And lemon week!
Please remember that this day may be about having people over, barbecues, yard work and pool parties, but for many people — it’s a hard day, a reminder of the greatest loss in their lives.
I love this song If You are Reading This by Tim McGraw.
I am forever grateful for you,
