to all those who have died defending our liberties... thank you.
to those currently serving our country... thank you.
i grew up as a child of the military. i attended 5 different elementary schools and then started at a whole new school for 7th grade. my youngest brother learned to pray saying "bless daddy to come home safely" because my dad was gone in Oman for the Gulf War. i am grateful for my dad and his military service. i'm grateful for my grandpas and their military service. they are both veterans of the 2nd world war. i am grateful to be a descendant of men who fought in the revolutionary war. memorial day is a day filled with lots of good food, family, bbqs... but let's not forget to remember to fill it with a few moments of gratitude for those who serve our country.
emerson wore a patriotic tie to church in honor of memorial day. here are a few impromptu family photos. i'm super grateful for my little family. i love both my husband and my little boy with all my heart.
